May Your Christmas Flourish

Well, Flourishes Noon Time Release Week Challenge is up and running! 
Today's noon Challenge is: Let's Play Tag!! 
All you have to do is create a tag and you could win Flourishes Entire November Release!! You can find more details HERE on their blog post.

I wanted to make something vintage (I love vintage Christmas stuff) yet simple so the image would stand out. Here is what I came up with ( I don't have my Christmas tree up so pardon my fireplace topiary :)

I used Flourishes "Sleigh Ride" and the sentiment from Flourishes "Flourished Christmas" set. I used an old piece of Graphic 45 paper for the fabric on my sleigh. I am using the Spellbinders Lacy Squares as my base, with an embossed Spellbinder Square background. I cut a frame with the largest two SB Square dies and added a flourished bracket in all four corners. I added Glossy Accents to the sleigh and added glitter to represent snow.

I'm not sure if you can tell, but I used some of my Copics to shade the "fabric" on my sleigh for depth and shadows. I can see it in real life, but I'm not sure if it shows up well in the picture. I hope it does, the Copic shading over the paper is pretty seamless. I am loving these Copics!!
I really love how my last sleigh card turned out and I really love how the glitter represents snow. I tried that puffy stuff for snow once and it ruined my cards, so I really like sticking with what works.
