November Color Challenge - 52CCT

Got started a little late with my crafting for the weekend.  I had to go in to work
 for a little while this morning to do an interview for a position I need to fill.  So, now
with that done I was able to get down to business creating a card for the color challenge
at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.

This is the color combo...

and what I managed to come up with.

It took me quite a while to formulate a plan but finally decided to pull out my Cricut
and my Christmas solutions cartridge.  I've already done several cards with poinsettias
this year and some snowflake cards so I thought one with a reindeer would be a good 
change.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the background of the frame and 2
Sizzix originals dies for the frame itself.  I added some bling and stamped the greeting.
There you have it!  Thanks for taking a look!
