A little Retro with a dash of Red Carpet

Hi Lovelies,

Today I am sharing a card I made with some scraps & a few things I've had in my stash for like evah! Cute isn't it! But hey I'm biased so I can say that.  I'm having a run on using things that I haven't touched in the longest time.  It's almost like getting something new again, I think.  This cute little deer, the snowflakes, seed beads & sentiment haven't seen the light of day in over a year I'd think.  So toady's the day to go retro I decided.

I used this cool sketch from the Retro Sketches Challenge blog.  I flipped the sketch so my little deer wasn't looking the wrong way.  I sewed the sequin snowflakes down with cotton & a seed bead to stop them from falling off.  I'm hoping the 3 snowflakes count as the speech bubble.  I'm also going to enter this into Red Carpet Studio's challenge Snowflakes or snowmen.  I used up some more pp from Darling Deer.  I am not sure if this is classed as a Christmas card or not - what do you think? I added "Enjoy the little things" sentiment from Hero Arts because it fit perfectly under the image.  Plus aren't snowflakes little?  The closest I get to snow is watching it on the TV.

Have a wonderful week ahead & happy crafting.
