Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge Red And White

Good Morning Ladies,
I took a trip over to Joan's yesterday and picked up so many goodies. I am loving all the new dies, Heartfelt Creations stamps, and 6x6 paper pads. Yes I am hooked like so many others. Joan is always so nice!
The requirements for the challenge this week are as follows....
use a die
use a christmas sentiment
use some kind of light...candle, christmas tree lights, snow ...etc
use red and white...
You can see all the details and entries here....
Here is my entry.....
 My light source is the lampost die from Cheery Lynn Designs. I cut this out of black card stock and added yellow stickles for the light. I cut the sleigh from metallic cardstock. This is a Marianne Design die. The reindeer are also a Marianne Design die. They are cut from white glitter card stock. My sentiment is from inkadinkado. I embossed this in gold on metallic card stock and then cut it with a spellbinder die. The bottom border is created using a Martha Stewart punch. This is punched out of glitter card stock.

I purchased these dies some time ago at Joan's. I had not put them to use yet. When this challenge came up I knew they were just perfect.
The variety of very cool dies at Joan's is so great I don't think I will ever have all that I want.
While I was at Joan's yesterday I picked up my prize from the world card challenge. It is a Marianne die...the key. I can't wait to use it! Thanks Joan!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

I love your red and white card with all the glitter and shine. Don't you love those Marianne dies! The reindeer and sleigh are so cute the way you arranged them. Thank you for joining us again this week in the challenge at Joan's Gardens.
