Christmas deer again

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 95: black and white and another colour if you wish - this time I haven't cheated - I've only added one other colour. The image is once again the IndigoBlu 'merry Christmas deer'. I actually stamped and heat embossed this with black detail before I made my first card for CHNC challenge 95, but I got some powder caught on the surrounding white card so I couldn't use it. I decided not to waste it, but to cut round it and mount it on to an offcut from my Christmas box, a piece of paper that originally came free with a magazine. This was then simply matted on to a black card blank. Unfortunately, on this photo the heated embossing doesn't show up.
