Cold enough for a red nose?

I love making Christmas cards ( tehhee good job really as I am the Co owner of The ABC Christmas challenge blog I here you say!) but.................what I love about it is I never get fed up looking at the wonderful cards others make! So many awesome cards, projects and ideas, so inspiring! and the last 2 challenges we have had mega loads of entries and although I can not comment on them all as I have done all year! I am looking at them all and I have to say AWESOME job! peeps!

Ok so on to my cards
I wanted to use this cute Wee image as its cold outside enough to give anyone a red nose!
and I wanted to play along with a few challenges too!
I am lovely using Kraft card, and I have using some magic mesh instead of ribbon as I wanted it to be light. I have also coloured a silver brad for the reindeer's nose, and added some art quest water colour to the rose to give it a light sparkle.
So I am entering

Papertake - Cut it out - nesties
 I have also had a little time to play with the art quest palette for this mini card too!
I stamped and embossing in black and then have used the paints to colour the bugs with as they are shimmery and also a water colour you can blend them, with quite nice results.
No time to stamp want to see Black this week ( and now I can not find their blog! doh)
and Daring Cardmakers spots and strips - you can't see the strips so good on the photo but this kraft card I have used has embossing strips and the spots are on the bugs :0) hope that counts!

and another play just on kraft!
 Have a great Sunday we have mega loads of snow!
