Reindeer Christmas card

Happy Sunday friends; oh my goodness it has been so long since I last posted, I hope you missed me!  My mojo has been lacking for the last few weeks and I have been in a bit of a creative slump.  However I found an image that I had already coloured up so thought I would try and make something with it.   Here is my card:

a close up of the adorable image:

I also decorated the inside:
As I mentioned I had already coloured up the cute reindeer image with my Promarkers and fussy cut him out.  I embossed a background of kraft card with a snow flake embossing folder and cut it to 4 " x 5 1/4".  I die cut the beautiful decorative circle and also some small trees from white card and also a small snow bank (but it's hard to see it).  I placed the larger tree behind the bank and adhered the smaller tree in front using liquid glue.  The reindeer was added on top with foam squares.  The kraft panel was added to the A2 card base using  double sided tape and then the decorative circle was added towards the top using foam tape.  I stamped and heat embossed a small sentiment and cut it out with a sentiment strip die.  This was added to the bottom right with foam squares.  For the inside I stamped a sentiment in black ink onto a white panel and this was added onto a kraft panel.  This was added to the card with double sided tape.  I lightly inked some sea glass ink into the bottom left corner and placed a white tree on top with liquid glue.  I didn't add any embellishments as I thought it looked ok without any.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Animals challenge - must include an animal
Crafty Catz challenge - ATG option lots of layers
Critter Crazy challenge - ATG with a featured critter
Cut It Up challenge - add a sentiment (must include a die cut)
Inkspirational challenge - word prompt - cold
Little Red Wagon challenge - patterned paper or not - I find myself using paper less and less but do try and use up some of it from time to time.  I use embossing folders a lot, as I have on this card

I will try and hunt down my mojo and make something else really soon so that there is such a long break between posts again.  I appreciate you stopping by. 

Love and hugs,
