Reindeer greetings

Wow, I'm really on a roll here. I don't think I've made this many cards for at least a year if not more. One or two a day? Whoa, lol. Maybe I'll get it all done on time without getting totally sick. Keep your fingers crossed...

I have used one of the reindeers from stämpelgården again. I really like this stamp. Because he is mostly covered you can match the colours on him to any patterned paper you might have. I sometimes find it hard to colourmatch when there are animals because they often need to be brown and that ruins the whole impression.

Most of the papers I have used are from imaginisce although I used some small pieces from other companies too. I used a sketch, but removed one of the panels as it got way too cluttered for my taste. I think many of the papers are too covered, so I'm not sure how I feel about this card. I must say I was much happier with it when I finished it. Right now it seems a little bit iffy to me. Maybe it's just because I want to send a superwonderful card to my cousin and knock his socks off, lol.

The challenges I've used are:

Cooking it up with katie - red, layers and Christmas
My time to craft - reindeer greetings
Peartree designs - Christmas
Pink elephant - winter wonderland
Promarker  - anything goes
Sketch saturday - sketch (I turned it upside down)
Stamptacular - winter scene
Stamp with fun - X-mas
