Glad Tidings Deer

Challenge #163 has just gone live at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge and I have a quick card today!  

These reindeer (Poppy Stamps Whittle Forest Reindeer) have been sitting on my window sill for a few weeks - I had cut them when I made up this card!   I  thought I'd make them a little more special so out came the gilding wax ... again!   This stitched panel was also in my UFO pile so it was just a matter of working out what else to add.  I went with this row of trees (Poppystamps Whittle Tree Border).  If you look closely, you'll see a touch of gilding wax on the trees as well.  To subtly ground the scene, I used some very old stitched border dies (Paper Smooches Stitched).  Do you think I should add red noses ... I do like my reindeer with red noses, don't you?
