CHNC challenge 400

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 400 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'include a reindeer'.

I randomly stamped the Inkadinkadoo reindeer stamp inked with stazon jet black on to a white card blank. I then stamped it inked with versamark on to a scrap piece of black card, heat embossing with detail silver powder before cutting out with a Spellbinders die, edged with an embossing pen and heat embossed with the detail silver. I then added the two Kanban sentiment pieces.
