Rudolph Days for June

Each month there is a challenge to produce Christmas cards from 25th to the end of the month - find details HERE.  There are some great inspiration cards from the design team and considering the Shopping channels seem to be well into Christmas I decided to make a quick card using a stamp which I won a few months ago.  The image was stamped using Versafine and coloured with Distress ink markers scribbled onto a tile and picked up with a wet brush.  Oval dies were used to cut out the image and the card was finished with some leaves and a Bow and Star diecut all of which were in one of the 'pots' on my desk where I keep such things until they come in handy.  I'm afraid I can't remember where the bow and star came from and a quick look amongst my dies didn't unearth the die.  The background paper came from my stack of odd pieces of paper and the sentiment was a download.  A couple of gems were added for mistletoe berries.

Image - House Mouse stamp
Ovals - Tonic nesting ovals dies
Leaves - die from a set given with magazine last Christmas
Bow and Star - die unknown as it was from my oddments cut a long time ago.
Sentiment - download from Netty's Cards
