YNS Challenge 56

Oh, how I love the YNS challenge #56 colors, don't you? I decided to stretch my stamps and convert the string of lights on the deer to a string of hearts. So cute! I stenciled first then embossed; this avoids pooling of ink (around the snowflakes, eg) but that might be the effect you're looking for so go ahead and try it both ways. I used a Glaze pen to make the string into a leather strip of sorts then glued hearts over the lightbulbs. For her pompom, I coated that with glitter because you can never have too much of that!

I'm entering this in Merry Monday #231 Reindeer
