Happy Tuesday everyone! Things are going to get a little more complicated this week with the last few posts of the 12 Days of Christmas Cards! I have a lot to show you outside of this series!! Including ANOTHER series! Yep! But you'll have to wait a couple days for the start of that! ;)
Today I'm bringing you another of my favorites of the cards I made this year. It's super CAS but still evokes a magical feel which is why I chose the sentiment "Believe".
I simply used another tone on tone approach, this time breaking it up with one simple, yet beautiful patterned paper (October Afternoon- Very Merry) along with this adorable felt deer from Close to My Heart. Added ribbon and a rhinestone to little Rudolph's nose, a few buttons and my favorite zig zag stitch, and he's done.
Today's sketch is another that is turned on it's side. I also opted to move the buttons off the ribbon above my sentiment. However, using the sketch vertically I thought the buttons make more cense on the vertical piece. I can't wait to see what you do with it though! ;)

I'm seeing more and more submissions! Thanks everyone! I can't wait to see what you are up to next!

Now remember, if you don't see a 12 Days post up top, make sure to check around, because I may be posting more that once a day this week, especially since the holiday card making/sending season is about to come to an end soon and because I have LOTS to share! Also, I'm posting the cards onto 2 Peas, Scrapbook.com and my Facebook Page, so if you haven't seen it here, make sure to check those places out, too! ;)
