Rocking Reindeer

Soooooo, it would seem that weekend posts from me may be becoming a bit more frequent.  Once again, I post this weekend in order to enter some challenges.

This time I am entering:

Here is my card:

To make this, I stamped the reindeer with black ink onto white card.  The stamp came from a free set I got with last month's issue of Simply Homemade.  I then coloured with promarkers and layered this onto a circle of black card.

The papers are all from my new Dovecraft Merry Magic paper pack, and the colours fit the V for Vibrant and so fit well with the ABC Challenge.  I have also used four papers - the background paper and three smaller pieces of paper - so this fits that part of the recipe on the Incy Wincy blog.  All of the paper were layered onto black card to ensure they stood out.

The two ribbons from the recipe were used to make a bloom of pink and black, using pink grosgrain ribbon and thin satin black ribbon.  This was then topped with a snowflake, to be one of the brads from the recipe.

The other two brads are provided by the silver Christmas Trees on the image.

I think this is a perfect untraditional Christmas card for maybe a teenage girl.

I hope you like it.

Happy Crafting!
