Black Reindeer

Today's card is for a friend to give to her brother and brother-in-law - she finds it very difficult to find cards for a gay couple that aren't too risque/smutty.

I bought some fab black die cut reindeer heads at a recent Max Papercraft fair and I knew I had some perfect patterned paper to match !

I've mounted the die cut on a oval frame and added a red pearl for the nose and a Memory Box bauble die dangling from an antler.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Water Cooler Wednesday #150 - masculine 
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #447 - anything goes
