Whimsy DT Reindeer

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today I'd like to share with you a card I've made with one of my brand new Whimsy Animal stamps that dropped through my letterbox a few days ago!  This cutie is called Whimsy Reindeer, and I used my Whisper pens to colour him.  I inked around the edges with my trusty Wheat Versamagic Dew Drop, added some Stickles to the snowflakes, and finally some Flowersoft Polar White on the ground for the snow (love this stuff!):

Sorry for the absolutely pants piccies.  It's a typical November day here - wet, cold and very dark.

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

1. Papertake Weekly ... Sketch #27 : I've followed Dawny P's fab sketch over at Papertake Weekly.

2. Stamp Something ... Cute and Fuzzy Somethings : Well Reindeer are cute and fuzzy ... sorta, LOL!

3. Basic Grey ... Week 7 Photo Inspiration : The colours in the photo are chocolate, cream and raspberry. I know there's not a lot of pink or red on this card, but the Reindeer's tongue is, so I hope this still counts? I've used paper from the BG Bittersweet 6x6 paper pad.

4. SophisiCat Challenge ... Week #9 Buttons and Ribbons : yep!

I'm really disappointed that I can't get a good piccie of this card :o(  The colours so go together, and it looks really yummy in real-life, I promise, LOL! If the sun ever shines this week, I'll take another photo and replace!

Thanks for dropping by!

Hugs, Sem x
