Christmas In July

This week is the week long Christmas In July challenges at Catch The Bug.  I have been wanting to create a card  for each day of the challenge and was finally able to find time to create them today!  The first card that I am sharing with you is for day 1 which is the following sketch.

 For this card I created a red and white card using Bobblehead Reindeer.  I started with a red card base and added a piece of white card stock cut just a little smaller than the base.  I cut a strip of red star patterned paper and added it down the side. I embossed a piece of white card stock using a dot embossing folder.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and backed it in red and then again in white.  I added 2 red and silver star stickers to the bottom corner of the image.  I added a red rhinestone to the silver star and a clear rhinestone to the red star.  I stamped the sentiment onto white  card stock and added a little color to it. 

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
