Mini Holidays

The background and calendar for this card were created by sponging ColorBox Frost White onto Whisper White paper then adding Distressed Broken China & Faded Jeans.  I then inked up the music stamp with Distressed Black Soot by lightly swiping over the stamp.  Lastly, I sponged SU Frost White Shimmer Paint all over the background and calendar.

The reindeer was stamped in StazOn Black on Shimmery White paper then sponged with Handsome Hunter.  I used my hobby blade to cut it out then added the clear rhinestones.

The card still needed something so I added the snowflake brad.  Sure wish you could see how pretty the background is, but I just couldn't get a good picture of it.
