Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Firstly, I have another new follower.  I especially love the cute images Janice uses on some of her cards.  So go over to 'Stamping Mad' to see her lovely creations. 

I decided I need to keep going with my Christmas cards, as well as making other cards, so this is my next design for this year.
I've stamped and coloured twenty of these Rudolph images, so just nineteen cards still to make of this design!  The stamp is an old Anita's one and I've coloured the image with Promarkers and a red Sakura Stardust pen to add a bit of sparkle to the decorations hanging from the antlers.  When Rudolph was coloured, he had a black nose from the stamp.  I decided I really needed to give him a shiny red nose.  The only way I could work out how to do this so it looked okay, was to cut an oval using a snippet of red holographic card. The patterned paper is from a Christmas paper stack I bought at the NEC Hobbycraft show last year.  From memory, it was just £1 - bargain!  I hope they've got some good bargains next weekend, when I visit!  Card Candi finished off my design.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
