Two Legs or Four at Papertake weekly

Good afternoon lovely peeps.
Hope your week has got off to a good start - sending cyber hugs to those that need them - I know of a few that do :o)

Today I have my DT make for the new challenge over at 


and this week we have a fabulous theme of


So basically we would like to see images with either 2 legs or 4 legs - simples!!

I decided to have a play with one of my favourite Indigo Blu images from last year and some Gilding Flakes and here's what I did:

Card Ingredients:
Image: Indigo Blu 'Merry Christmas Deer'
Indigo Blu 'Flitter Glue' and 'Autumn Blaze' Gilding Flakes
Crafter's Companion Embossalicious Embossing Folder
Gingham Ribbon from stash
Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Even though there is a bow on this card - it is still quite flat and just about makes it as a standard letter for postage - result!!!

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies and to see the gorgeous prize on offer from our wonderful sponsor this week:

This caught my eye! I love the reindeer and they almost look quilted in the pictures. How did you do them? Are they just stamped and then embossed with a glitter?? Just wondering-love it!
