The Cheerful stamp pad challenge 80: black and white

This is my design card for the Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 80 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in the challenge with your black and white creations. The challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.

The image is 'reindeer silhouette' by our sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps, matted on to black card. The background reindeer card is from an old Kanban kit. The card was finished off with a piece of stitched ribbon, some punched snowflakes and a rub on sentiment.
