On The Second Day of Christmas.

Continuing on from the post below with the 12 Days of Christmas challenge by
Frosted Designs.
On the Second Day of Christmas my true love said to me please use 2 Stamps.

I looked through my Christmas stamps and what was left in my Christmas stash and came up with this  card. Papers are by Kaiser Craft and have a distnct vintage feel to them so  I went with a  shabby chic theme and colour scheme. The two stamps ( Reindeer and  lacy edge ) are part of  a freebie set  from a magazine. I have stamped them in Dusky Concord distress ink. Bow was made from a left over piece of ribbon.

Entering into the following challenges:
Frosted Designs: Second Day of Christmas. 2 stamps.
Simply Create: Linky Party #15.
Stamping for the Weekend: Anything Goes.
Creative Belli: Christmas.
A Gem of a Challenge: Lavender & Lace.

Keeping in mind that I don't like lavender...I was surprised to find that I really liked this card. Something about combining your reindeer with the newsprint background really calls out to me.
