A Touch of Christmas #11

On to week #11 of A Touch of Christmas. Moving right along! I chose to do a gift card this week with a little reindeer stamp from the C.C. Designs Sugarplum North Pole Collection. The gift card came out larger than I expected, but as always it was fun to do! I layered the deer, added some Prima flowers, and some punched leaves from what has become my favorite punch by EK. I'm having a heck of a time with the McGill punches I have. Love the look of those leaves as well, but I'm clearly lacking in the strength one needs to use them. Any suggestions on making them easier to use would be much appreciated!

I've entered this little Christmas Gift Card in a few challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenges #82 - used a lot of Green
Pollycraft Monday Challenge #36 - Sparkly Things (used clear gems)
Fussy and Fancy Friday #6 - Green

Your little deer is Cah-ute!! Great job on layering him.. I know what you mean about those punches ...When I am having trouble I just turn mine upside down so the button is on the desk and press down that way...Good luck.. ~hugs~
