Christmas Chaos - Day 6 - Christmas Critter

This is day 6 of a funfilled week with daily Christmas themed challenges over at Catch the Bug. You can win prizes by participating in one, some or all challenges this week.

If you ask me to name the first animal I think of for Christmas it's reindeer. So for my Christmas Critter GDT card I chose the adorable "Plush reindeer", he's colored with Promarkers and have a generous amount of glossy accent on his nose. I went with a Nordic design pattern for the background, using a stamp from Tim Holtz and gold embossing powder. I used a Christmas stamp in Norwegian for the sentiment, also heat embossed. The die cut holly branch is made with a Memory Box die and I decorated it with some red pearls from my stash.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - Anything goes with Gold
2) Sentimental Sundays - #236 Embossing Wet or Dry
3) Allsorts - Animal Magic
4) Pile It On - #49 Anything Goes Christmas/Holidays
5) Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes

Very cute card Pia. I love reindeer too! Someone here in Missouri just shot and killed the famed albino deer that has been around for a few years...this person is getting all kinds of grief from people. Of course, what do you expect when you smear it all over FB with photos. Poor deer... :( However, the one on your card is FABULOUS and I'm really digging the background design!!

Oh my! This is a super cute card. The bg looks like a stencil by Tim Holtz... which I bought and still hasn't seen the light of day! There's something quite adorable about the look on the reindeer's face ... just want to hug the little guy! :)
