Merry Christmas...

Good morning!

After watching the classic Rudolph Christmas special on TV the other night, I really wanted to create a 'bumble' inspired Christmas card using the Beast Friends set from MFT. I chose this cute guy because I knew I could add a star to his upraised arm and mimic the end of the show when Yukon Cornelius shows up with a newly tamed Bumble to help add toppers to the Christmas trees. Since I had the stamps all picked out I decided to check out the latest MFT sketch challenge to see if I wanted to play along. I was really inspired by the layout so it became the perfect jumping off point. I did shift the sentiment block up compared to the original sketch but it was just getting too crowded down at the bottom of the card. There is a lot of die action going on to create the background and it ended up being pretty monochromatic blue for a Christmas card but I think it does a good job of transporting us to the North Pole. 

Alrighty, rumor has it that Bumbles bounce but right now it's time for me to bounce. Laters!  :)
