I've started early for a change!

Hi Everyone,

This is a card I have made to get me kick started with my Christmas Cards.  I have used Dreamweaver stencil and Bronze embossing paste for the main topper on the card and sprinkled it with Martha Stewart 'orange sorbet' glitter while it was still wet.  I distressed the edges of the topper with a combination of Vintage Photo and Spun Sugar Distress Inks and then mounted this on to Garnet cardstock.

 The Reindeer is a grungeboard element which I inked, sanded, stamped, embossed and distressed.  The stamp is a snowflake stamp but I am not sure which collection it's from.  The gingham paper is from craftwork cards and the ribbon is a scrunched paper ribbon which I got on ebay forever ago, I knew I would use it someday! 
I am entering it into the Make it Monday Challenge ,Wags and Whiskers 'Sparkle' challenge and Totally Papercrafts 'Holidays'
Hope you are all having a nice week,
