Flourished Reindeer

I decided to venture out with some new challenges for a change in my stamping pace! I am barely making the deadline for the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger Challenge, but loved the elegant partridge in a pear tree pillow with it's pale blue tones paired with silver/gray and white! The elegant design of the bird made me think of my long neglected reindeer image from Flourishes. I seem to gravitate to the elegance of embossing powders with many of my Christmas cards. I then added some Copic coloring using BG0000 & C00. This card uses the sketch from Cardabilities #45 sketch challenge and yes...I had to be a bit rebellious and flip it to a vertical layout. I'm thinking I'll use this for my daughter's boyfriend's gift and tuck a nice crisp, green piece of spendable paper on the inside! Hope the size will fit - lol!
