Believe In Word Holiday Sleigh

This is for today's TAKE THE TUESDAY CHALLENGE provided by CLEAR AND SIMPLE each month. This month we are challenged to create something for holiday decor. Well that was easy for me since I just loved this sleigh template so much and Shannon did too so I made her one. I think I like hers better than the 1st one. Hmm may have to swap it out huh? LOL. This one was made with a sheet of red metallic for the sleigh portion and the gold metallic for the frame. I used large brad to attach the frame to the sleigh. This template found on the CLEAR AND SIMPLE BLOG site is one of the easiest and most fun ones I have done. This sleigh was trimmed in gold cording, filled with red confetti and peppermints. The focal image is a decorated black ink pen. I punched 2 Marvy extra giga scallop circles in green and 2 giga scallop circles in white. I stamped the image 4 times in graphite black then colored with copics. and cut out the 2 birds and popped them up on dimensionals.
Here is another angle of this desktop treat holder.

And here is a close up of this darling cardinal image. I just think it is awesome. I think I will put this on my desk for decoration since they will not let us plug in trees (insert pout). This darling image is from a set called BELIEVE IN WORDS IV and will be available on December 10th from CLEAR AND SIMPLE STAMPS.
I made this in my all time favorite Christmas color combo (red , green and gold) so it is also for this weeks challenge from THE PINK ELEPHANT. Hope you like it. Come on play along with this months Take the Tuesday Challenge and visit the other Clear and Simple Design Team members for more eye candy.
