Christmas Card Club - Feature a creature

It's Hazel's turn to set our challenge and she set a fun one - Feature a creature - I really wanted to find something whacky but I'm sorry I settled on Rudolph.  He's stamped in early espresso and framed with the oval designer embossing folder frame, but I've used the debossed side for a slightly different look.  I've used markers to colour the doily and my spritzer tool to mask the smudge I made using the doily when it was still wet!!!  I also used on of the needlepoint embossing folders to add some definition above my dsp.  I've made an embellishment with cherry cobbler seam binding and a dahlia in gumball green.  A simple sentiment is all I needed as Rudi says it all. 
Thanks for a different challenge Hazel!

ps his nose is red with Stampin' Up! cherry cobbler dazzling details!

  8. He's perfect Zoe - wacky is so last season - Rudi rules! Someone once said to me that little ink splodges and mistakes happen because a card needs an embellishment - mind you it always happens to me when I'm trying very hard to do a OLC and CAS card! Karen x
