Sketch Saturday, ABC & My Time to Craft Challenges

Hello everyone
My first post for today is a Christmas Card which I think satisfies three challenges.
Once again I will start with the sketch (shown below) which was from the Sketch Saturday Challenge - always a lovely sketch this one.

For the main image I used a Pink Gems stamp called Millie on Reindeer which I have only recently purchased. As the ABC challenge was "Anything Goes with the added option of animals" I think the reindeer makes it eligible for this challenge. I coloured in the image using Sakura Gelly Roll pens and my watercolour pencils blended in using the Art Kure waterbrush. For the fur on Millie's clothing I used Liquid Pearls to give a raised effect and then covered this with glitter. For the image backing I used a holographic card from my craft stash. The Snowflake paper is one of a 12x12 pack but I've had it so long I can't remember what it is called or who made it, sorry. I also used a piece of vellum with a snowflake image embossed on it and scalloped the edge with a Fiskars border punch with a Christmassy theme. The ribbon was from my craft stash but is one of many that I have purchased over the years from Crafty Ribbons. The sentiment is again a Pink Gem design that I bought recently. The brads are from a set of Dovecraft brads called, would you believe - Snowflakes! My Time to Craft's challenge is Christmas this time so this card qualifies for that challenge too.
I hope you like the finished card.
