Elk the Reindeer

Hi! Joy here today, showing you my card made with supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  This card comes with a story.  We have a large elk head in my dinning room.

When my grand kids were little (3/4 years old), it was very scary to them.  We finally told them it was Rudolph, the red nose reindeer,and put a small red ball on its nose. From then on it did not scare them. So when I see or hear a story about reindeer, I think of the elk in my dinning room.

For this challenge I decided to do a swing card.

I used the Sizzix die called Accordion Flip Album, and cut 2 of the dies to put together.

The image and sentiment are from Flourishes and called Mountain View.

The paper is from Kaisercraft, called Holly Bright.  I love the front die cut with the little white flower which I popped up with a few Joy Small Foam Pads. The die cut is from the Holy Bright paper pad. This pad has 4 pages of really neat die cuts. I lightly colored the image with a few Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers.
