Merry Monday #62

* This is my third post of the day!  If you are looking for my Mojo Monday post or this month's Diva Dare post, please see my two previous posts *

This week's Merry Monday sketch is another wonderful sketch to work with as the possibilities with the circle element are endless!

I decided to pull out Stampin' Up's Dasher - love this reindeer image!   I embossed him in gold and added some gold, half pearls to a few of the dots in the antler design for a bit of dimension. 

The paper is a piece I have been hoarding for some time from a Costco pack I got a few years back.  Today was the perfect day to bring it out again.  The card needed a little something so I added some gold twine with a snowflake in the middle, and Dasher is totally ready to travel to someone's home this Christmas :)

The rest of the Merry Monday Crew have fabulous samples of this week's sketch.  Below is a link to each of their blogs.

Marisa - this is such a special creation. It's so beautiful with the blues and touches of gold - and you've used a classic image that for me has been a challenge to use. Thank you for the inspiration!!
