Christmas Reindeer

It is launch time at All Dressed Up, and we have four fantastic images for you for this months launch so be sure to head on over to the Shop and check them out.
For my I've have used the new and very cute Christmas Reindeer.
To be honest, I am not happy with this card at all but I've left it too late and completely run out of time and am unable to do another.  Anything that could go wrong with this project did... I couldn't get my Silhouette to work so it had to be cut by hand.  Spent an hour looking for my scissor and never could find it so I had to use the big old clunkers.  Then the snow shading... that awful 'X'... wasn't paying attention when I sponged in my colour and thought I had disguised it enough but it shows up big as life in the photo.  I then went on to anchor the deer because he was just floating in the snow, and again... what was I thinking?  I used brown ink... it's not dirt for crying out loud, it is snow!
Now that I've got my crying and whining out of the way, I will give you some details.  I used one of the stamps from Flourishes Forest of Trees and used Stampin' Up Not Quite Navy ink.  The snow is my fave embellishment... Frantage!
Don't forget our current Challenge  theme is Autumn and you still have time to enter your project. !
Also be sure to stop by our Facebook Group to share your All Dressed Up creations & chat to fellow crafters.  Also keep an eye out for more inspiration from the rest of The Dressy Girls throughout the month.

Marilyn, you're too funny! Looks to me like everything is RIGHT with this and far from being anything wrong! Love the little deer and those gorgeous trees in the background - and of course the falling "snow"! It's beautiful. The x....gives the entire card a look all of it's own and I love it. As far as the "dirt"....come on....we all know that when the snow melts in places, you have dirt! Right! I LOVE your card!
