It's a Nordic Christmas

Hello Again,

I seem to be in a bit of a CAS (clean & simple) design mode lately so I challenged myself to interpret the essential elements of a Nordic style into a CAS make, and it tied in nicely with the challenge over at Polkadoodles and as I had already made this one, I thought I'd still share.....

....and here's what I came up with.....

I loved how this one turned out....and I hope you do cute does the 'ickle Reindeer look!

Here's what I used to make it:
Images: The Reindeer is pre-coloured, and the North Pole does come pre-coloured but I chose to colour it up with my Graph'it Marker Pens.  Both images are from the gorgeous Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs CD Collection that is also available as a complete collection Digital Download!
Sentiment: Is also from Work & Play Festive Hollybobs Collection
Backing: from my stash...white card, dark antique silver card.  Double layered to add depth and definition to the main design
Embellies: Glamour dust sprinkled over cosmic shimmer glue adds the snow (this way you keep the 3D effect) and snowflakes with bling that I bought from our local The Works shop.
Insert: backing paper also from Work & Play Festive Hollybobs

So simple, yest I love how dramatic the images look on this syle :D

Here's the close ups:
