On this day... - holiday card for Get Sketchy #62

Good evening, my friends!
 Fisrt of all, my blog giveaway of some goodies for Chrismas is going to start from the day after tommorow. Only one item doesn't arrive here now. But it will reach here tomorrow since it passed the domestic customs this afternoon. I'll announce you again.

 And, the next is... about card making as usual. ;)
Tonight I played with some of my purchases arrived here the day before yesterday, and finished a card for Get Sketchy challenge #62. I knew this challenge site when I visited the Hero Arts blog on Oct. 29. It's been a few weeks since my last visit. While reading the blog article, I noticed the new tweet of an information for this challenge in the space of Hero Arts Twitter. They are the sponsor of #62! You can see the challenge details from the URL above.

 Here is the sketch #62. This is my first attempt to send my card to 'Get Sketchy'.
There's no sketch for that challenge. was already deleted. (added by January, 2012)
And, here's a card I made.
Click the photo above to enlarge please.

 Loved the sketch at first sight, and soon I thought making the snowy scene to use the sketch. But it wasn't presumed to use the Winkling Reindeer stamp. Because, it hadn't arrived here yet.
 The background, approximately the bottom half was dry embossed, and did sanding at the surface slightly. And added the die cutted holly trees by Quickutz. The coloring of the reindeer was all Copic markers. The reindeer, some of trees, and a tag were raised - it's difficult to show you by this photo. Sorry.
I used CB embossing folder after a long interval. And dared to take the way to use it for the terra. Is it strange? ;) - I wanted to express the terra snow-covered to use the dry embossed paper. Enjoyed creating this card so much! :)
 Thanks so much for the wonderful challenge!

 And finally, probably you all felt exactly the same as me. I was so surprised to see the breaking news that the suspicious packages were found last week. (I escaped to use the proper nouns intentionally).
And, another scary news reached here that Mt. Merapi in Indonesia (Gunung Merapi) erupt again. The natural disasters hit Indonesia continuously. Sending love and prayers for the victims and their family. And I'm worrying about the peoples I met when I visited there, the family members of my friends who are working at the neighbour cities as caregivers, and my friends met at Flickr.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!
