Reindeer Noel

The lovely crew at Simon Says Stamp is having a DT Call. I'm a long time fan of all of their blogs and love to play in their challenges; may as well toss my name into the hat. :o) The theme this week is Coffee and Cream. While I am a huge coffee addict, I opted to go with a color interpretation of the theme, with a bit of mint tossed in.

Use 2 stamps, only partial piece of images. My reindeer and postmarks are 'half' on the panel.

My Creation
Image Detail
I tried to add 'frost' with my Stickles, but I think my I grabbed the wrong 'clear' bottle as there's a bit of green sparkle to it. Since it's a Christmas card and the base is green, I thought it was an unexpected twist...in a good way.
