Christmas has arrived at The Pixie Cottage

There are two things that I love, Christmas and the Pixie Cottage. So, when I found out that the PC was starting pre-order for their Christmas line, I was so excited! There are so many great images to choose, from Santa, reindeer, penguins, teddy bears...definitely worth taking a look HERE!
I chose this adorable Reindeer image to work with. Isn't he just the cutest! I popped up his huge nose for dimension and then added crystal effects for shine. The holly berries and the red ornaments are embellished with Stickles.
I used the Basic Grey "Wassail" papers and Bazzil cardstock. The background paper was stamped with a flourish, embossed and then embellished with Opaline pearls. The sentiment stamp is by Penny Black.
The snow around Mr. Reindeer is the new Polar White Flower Soft...sigh...I'm in love :)

Let me know what you think and definitely check out the Pixie Cottage Blog to see what the other DT members have done. Their work is gorgeous!Challenges:
Basic Grey - Photo Challenge (I used the colors from the photo and used BG papers and pearls)
Creative Card Crew - Ribbons and Gems (I used sheer green ribbon and pearls)
My time to craft - So many scallops (I used a scalloped circle)
Diva Coffee Break - Color Challenge
Lili of the Valley - 3 Papers, 2 Stamps (1 can be sentiment), 1 Type of Embellishment

Peggy,
This is such a beautiful card!
I love your choice of papers (can't go wrong with any of the BG Christmas papers) and I really like the whole traditional/vintage feel you've given to the piece.
