Bah! Humbug! Challenge --- Rudolph/Reindeer

You know that Christmas is getting closer when the mall is full of shoppers, many of them sporting antler headgear and red Rudolph noses.  Some of those noses are actually red because of colds and cold weather!  The girls at Bah! Humbug! are hoping to round up a herd of reindeer -- including Rudolph -- with this week's challenge.

I took advantage of this challenge to dust off my long-neglected Cricket to make the two pretty reindeer on this card:

I used gold metallic card stock for the reindeer and brown metallic for the shadow cut.  The dp is from My Mind's Eye Christmas stack.  The fern, gold holly leaves and ribbon are from the Christmas aisles at Michael's.  Behind the reindeer is a Nesties curved rectangle embossed with Cuttlebug swirls folder.  The sentiment 3D sticker is new from K&Co. 

Inside is the second reindeer, made with the same papers as the one on the front.  Also is a smaller rectangle to match the front.  The sentiment is computer generated. 

I started making this card with nothing in particular in mind except the reindeer.  It took awhile to lay it all out, but I am pretty happy with it.  I hope you like it, too!  Thanks for stopping by for a look.

Hello Barb

I love your card. The colours are gorgeous and mix so well together. Rudolph looks stunning in gold especially with the brown shadow effect. All of your embellishments blend so well together. Oh I do wish we had a Michaels in England, well I can live in hope.

Thank you so much for joining in our latest challange at Bah!Humbug!
