TLT - Winter Blues Laurie Style

This week the TLT gang is doing the Winter Blues per Laurie's request. I have LOVED seeing all the cards with lots and lots of blue, be sure to pop over to the challenge blog to see all the amazing creations!

Before we move on to my card, don't forget the Stamp of the Month (half price all month long) - see above!

I chose to use Vanity Reindeer again cuz she's BEAU-TI-FUL and loves looking at herself in the mirror to truly bask in her beauty. Tee Hee!!

I loved using MME for the blue papers - nice variety of blues - wish I could have gone totally monochromatic, but I just could not bring myself to color a blue reindeer. Hmph! I used glossy accents for the ornaments as well as the mirror and some black enamel for the sweet girl's nose.

Hope you'll join us over at the TLT challenge blog this week!

... no winter blues here, just gorgeous reindeer! ...
