Jingle All the Way Stamped Christmas Reindeer

Iiiiiiii'm dreaming of a whiiiiiiiite Christmas. 

Seriously, here in the frosty tundra that is North Dakota, things are decidedly... brown. 
Which is rather uncustomary for this part of the land. Now that it's December, I'm missing the fluffy white stuff. 

And now that it's December, that means it's time for a new Theme & Sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations! wooo! 

This month's theme and sketch are alllll set up to result in some uber elegant designs. The theme is stamps & gold and the sketch involves some scrawling lines and big ol' blooms.

But, naturally, instead of elegant I chose to go goofy and make some reindeer with jingle bell noses. 

I cut three curved lines into my background using Stitched Snow Hills die cuts. Since I also wanted to play along with the challenge over at Shopping Our Stash, which is snow much fun, I stamped some snowflakes from the Christmas Reindeer set and then sponged in two shades of blue Distress Inks. 

I cut out the reindeer and added on some jingly "noses" to accompany the sentiment. Snowy and cheeky! :) 

I hope you come play along this month at STAMPlorations because there are TONS of prizes, yo! You can use any stamps you'd like. 

I'm also going to play along with the following challenges:
