Santa's Sleigh

 Oh my goodness, tomorrow will be the first day of August. Happy birthday to all horses, and here in Australia it is Wattle Day. 

The weeks are just racing by at an alarming rate, and already it is time for 
another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty.
Our theme this week is 
We have 2 lovely sponsors this week, and they are

I was given this traditional digi image, Santa's Sleigh Silhouette, from Floppy Latte
to play with, as well as the digi paper. The Swiss Dots paper came in six
fabulous colours. 
I layered the paper, and adhered it with the base stripes both 
horizontally and vertically to create more visual interest. My stitching
is faux, the white drawn with a gel pen, and the sivery grey with a 
Zig Pen.
I coloured the moon with a Promarker (Primrose I think), and sponged
the edges of the white panel with Adirondack Denim.
In March, I bought the die for this reindeer from a lady at a stamp camp 
I attend twice yearly. She didn't want it...can't imagine why...
I love it. This is the first time I have used it, but I am sure you
will be seeing it quite often in the next few months. That tiny
blue gem fitted perfectly into his eye socket.
