Christmas Card Club Challenge #22 Christmas Reindeer

Hi Everyone,
Yay! the weekend has arrived, it's been such a busy week I'm glad that Saturday is here and I can slow down a bit. It's also time for another Christmas Card challenge too and today it is Rita's turn to choose a theme and she came up with 'Christmas Reindeers'.
I have chosen this cute stamp called 'Peeking Rudolphs' and unusually for me a CAS card.

A6 card blank
Peeking Rudolphs wood stamp
Crafts Too 'Snow' embossing folder
Crafters Companion sentiment stamp 
Dotty Ribbon
I do like to give myself a challenge now and again and this CAS card was most certainly a challenge. I have always found them difficult to do, I just want to keep putting more on it, I can't seem to be comfortable leaving the open spaces alone on the card. Now I've seen many beautiful CAS cards on the internet and they look fine with very little on them but when I do it, it just doesn't look right. But that said, I am quite happy with how this has turned out now.

Hi Lorraine, Just popped over to say Thanks for becoming my latest follower & saw your darling Reindeer card. Really like the way you've handled triple squares with this very cute image. It is very CAS & you did a fantastic job with that technique. The embossing on the white background is so very pretty with the dotted red ribbon too. (I've not even started on my card for Sunday as yet!) TFS & Hugs.
