Christmas Card Club Challenge #9

Hi Crafters,
This time at the CCC the challenge was set by Karen to make a card using 'black & white with one other colour'. I had these reindeer die cuts in my stash and thought these would be perfect for the challenge. They are cut from black glitter card and I set them in front of some torn paper hills and a Marianne Designs fir tree horizon die cut. The starry night sky background was a piece from a Kanban foil embossed sheet which I've also had in my stash for a long time.

I also added a piece of sheer organza ribbon and two silver bells to add to the Christmas theme.
Please take a look at the other ladies creations on the team, their links are in the tab at the top of my blog.
Challenges:
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Completely Christmas - Anything Goes #9
Scribble & Scrap - Anything Goes #17
CHNC challenge extra - Christmas Anything Goes (added)
Winter Wonderland - No Sentiment
 
Enjoy your Sunday and I'm off to visit a few of you out there this morning and will be round again later trying to catch up with commenting.
 
See you soon,
Lorraine

This is beautiful Lorraine - what a great pair of die cuts you had to use. I love the hills in the back ground with the blue sky, this is very effective with the silhouettes.

My card will be on my blog tomorrow, I have explained why - sorry.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Oh my goodness...this is stunning. The blue sky is fabulous...It catches your eye and directs it to the outline of the deer with that fab sky behind!
