Christmas Scene with a Wooden Reindeer

Some of you might know I love reindeer on Christmas cards. In general I struggle making cards inspired by photos, but with a reindeer on I had no problem at all:)

I have some wooden reindeer in my stash, and this one I gave a coat of bronze colored EP.

The winter village was stamped and heat embossed, no coloring, but lots of loose glitter added to it.

I used craft foam to cut the Memory Box poinsettia corner, love the dimension it adds. Another die was used for the Christmas greeting in Norwegian. Paper from Maja Design.

No red, no green - quite unusal for me not using any traditional colors on a Christmas card - but lots of sparkle from the glitter - I even added some on th craft foam.

This card is for these challenges:
Inkspirational - Photo inspiration
Clear It Out - Theme: Holiday / Christmas Stash: Glitter
Papertake Weekly - Take Your Pick (Technique - Glitter it up)
Crafting When We Can - #108 Don't forget the Animals
Rudolph Days Challenge - November

I think that it's very difficult made a festive card with no colours or nearly, but you have succeeded very well in it!!! All this sparkling snow is just perfect with the lovely landscape. The oval frame in silver and the dotted paper matches well with the reindeer! The reindeer seems crackled, gorgous!
But I love above all the frosy sparkling poinsettia corner that pop-out from the card, it's really beautiful!!!
Hugs, my friend!
