Silent night on Christmas Eve

This week's CHNC challenge 194 is 'silent night' - depict this in any way you wish. For this card I thought I would depict a silent night on Christmas Eve.

I've used the Bugaboo Stamps snow globe - reindeer silhouette, kindly supplied by them as they are one of the challenge's sponsors. I digitally placed this on to their frosty digi papers and printed out, just colouring the base of the snow globe with a spectrum noir. This was then matted on to a white card blank with the addition of three different sized poinsettias from Hobbycraft.

This is also for:
