another adventure in aqua

This morning, I didn't think to link the snowman card I made yesterday at 'Tis the Season, where the inspiration photo is in the same lovely colors I'd already used for Merry Monday, so I thought I'd make another aqua/silver/white card this afternoon.  Instead of a snowman, I decided to emboss Dasher's little brother (sister?  all reindeer can't be male, can they?) so I could link up at Holly Jolly Christmas and Christmas Card Challenges, and I also used Stef's fabulous sketch from Jingle Belles:
stamp sets - Best of Christmas, More Merry Messages; ink - Versamark, Silver Encore (on envelope); Stampin' Emboss powder - Silver; card stock - Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate; designer series paper - Winter Frost; Big Shot with Oval Collection framelit, Stampin' Dimensionals
Since I combined four challenges and used a soft color scheme, I'll pile on one more challenge and link up over at Pile It On this week, too.  
If I don't start doing separate cards for each challenge, I may not have enough cards in December.  I've found a few challenges I haven't tried before, though, so it will probably work out.  I do love making Christmas cards all year, and I have more now than I did a year ago.

This is lovely Kathe! I love the embossed reindeer and I just adore the Winter Frost DSO, its so pretty!

And nope, there are plenty of female reindeer(aka caribou!), so Dashers little sister sounds good to me!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at 'Tis The Season!

Kathe, I really love your card! I especially love the way the deer breaks the oval frame. So cool! Nice job on the inspiration for 'Tis the Season challenge! Keep it up and you'll totally be ready for next Christmas!

This is beautiful! The silver embossing is so elegant! And all reindeer are definitely not male. Remember Vixen!!
