Pink-Nose - This weeks challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is Non Traditional Christmas. 

I started with a base of white card stock and moved to pink card stock with Recollections Jolly Holiday papers. I love all the pinks and bright colors in this pad.

My image is Inkadinkadoo, stamped with dark brown ink. The image and mat were cut with SB dies. Leaving the die still in place, I gave the image a faux frame using Worn Lipstick distress ink. 

Did you notice the pink gemstone "nose" on the reindeer. 

While we are on the subject of reindeer. I can't resist to show you my visit to a reindeer farm in Alaska.

 I went there in October to visit my son, who is stationed there at Ft Richardson.

The reindeer are quite a bit smaller then I thought they would be. They were very sweet and would come up to you to get the feed.

I finished up my card with 3 larger gemstones in pink.

I hope you will come and join us at Crafts 4 Eternity, in our non-traditional Christmas challenge.
