Merry & Bright Card

I'm sharing a quick card I made this afternoon for some fun challenges.  I used my new Silhouette Cameo to cut the tag and the reindeer die cut.  The patterned paper is by Fancy Pants Designs and I decided to play up the aqua in it for something different.  As You Like It Challenge's is your favorite die and why.  I can't pick a favorite die except on the day I use it.  So today my favorite die is the scalloped tag I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  ;)  My red nosed reindeer will be playing at:

Jingle Belles (Text Me)
Use Your Stuff (Tag You're It!)
Watercooler Wednesday Challenge (All About Christmas)
ABC Christmas Challenge (A Is For Antler and B Is For Birds)
As You Like It (Favorite Die and Why)

Hi Bev, what a wonderful combination of colours and images you've used for your Christmas card! That background paper with the brilliant blooms and reindeer leaping really sets the scene, doesn't it? Love the die-cut reindeer rectangle combination and those pretty die-cut Poinsettias. Great job colouring and continuing those bright background colours. I love that sentiment! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

What an absolutely endearing little card (get it? En-DEER-ing)? Ha, ha! But I really do love what you've done here. Your reindeer has a great vibe and you've really brought him to life with the red blingy nose. I also love how you've incorporate a tag into the design. The floral elements are so refreshing and I like how this is traditionally jolly, but totally original, too! Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
