CHNC challenge 30: reindeer

It's Saturday, so that means there's a new challenge on my CHNC blog - this week I'd like to see at least one reindeer on your card - I'd love you to join in - just click here to be taken to Challenge 30.

Two or three weeks ago I showed a very similar card - you can see it here. A friend saw it and said she would like to buy it for Christmas and please could I make some more like it. One of her requests was for a blue card with a silver reindeer on it, so my challenge card is another commission ticked off the list.

Once again I stamped randomly with Brilliance starlite silver using various Inkadinkado snowflake stamps from a set (I do love these) and then heat embossed with detail silver. The Inkinkado reindeer was stamped and embossed in the same way. Having put three little gems in two corners of the silver mirror card I put a little blue one in each of the white flowers.

The photo doesn't show the card as irl - the whole card is silver embossed just like you can see in the left hand corner - such a difficult card to get a photo because of the glare of the silver mirror card. The inkadinkado reindeer stamped image is also silver embossed.

I'm entering this into these challenges:
