Reindeer Challenge

Santa Claus’s reindeer are a team of flying reindeer traditionally held to pull the sleigh of Santa Claus and help him deliver Christmas Gifts. Since this week is my turn to chose the challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges  I thought reindeer was a great theme.

I had this great stamp in my collection for a very long time by Inkadinkado. I believe it is one of the first Christmas Stamps I ever bought. I embossed the image in a very non-traditional Christmas color of purple. I think the dark purple looks like a night sky. I kept the card simple and just added a couple of layers of paper and ribbon.
Now it is your turn to create your card. Need an idea, check out the creations of the other elves at Holly Jolly. Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.

I would also like to entry this card in the following challenge
