Third Magical Monday!

This card is for my third Magical Monday for Nina at "There's Magic in the Air".


Meet Merry Moose! He was SO much fun to color!


(Be sure to run over to TMITA and pick up your own FREE digi image of Merry Moose!)



Every Monday morning, Nina posts a new digi image on the TMITA blog for you to create with. You can then enter your creation in a weekly contest to win prizes!


DT member, Danielle, issued a sketch challenge for this week! Here is Danielle's awesome sketch, followed by my card!



I actually (almost) stayed true to the sketch, even using stars where Danielle had stars! However, this is an A2 card, not a square card!



Hope you like it - isn't he the most adorable Moose???

***
Don't leave yet!!! I had so much fun with Merry Moose, that I made an easel card as well.


All DP for both cards were from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses that my friend Shirley brought me last week!!! (Don't you just LOVE wonderful friends???)


Here is my easel card. I took a side shot so that you could see all of the layers are different heights. The two outside trees are adhered flat to the card. The inside tree is raised up with one set of dimensional dots, and Merry Moose is raised up with two sets.


Hope you like this one too!



Nina's store is open! Be sure to stop by and check out ALL of her amazing images! Just click on the link below to begin shopping for your own collection!


Thanks for stopping by! - Have a wonderful day!

I am also entering this at Rosie-Dee's Challenge, which is Rudolph!

Always keep your words soft and tender, for tomorrow, you may have to eat them!

That moose is soooo cute. My aunt loves Moose. She isn't a crafter though, but she might become one just so she could play with that. Great sketch too. Would love to play,but I'm trying to focus on my kids this week. Hope you have a Merry Christmas my friend.

What an awesome card, Patti! I have to say, though, that the moose looks a bit like a dog with moose antlers (hahahahaha!). Those easel cards are fun.
