Prancing Reindeer

Good Morning.
The big day is almost here and I'm thinking about prancing Reindeer and Santa's arrival.
Meet today's card.  Pretty simple with a bit of whimsy.

I began by using my acetate inking technique again with blue Distress Oxide inks.
When it was dry, I stamped some graffiti randomly in the bkg. to add some depth and interest.
I die-cut the fun reindeer then stamped it with the check for fun.
I added some black gems to the neckline then stamped the sentiment.
I pop-dotted the reindeer over the inked bkg.

Have a wonderful Christmas Eve.
