Jingle Belles Card Challenge #2

This is my card:
"So this week's Jingle Belles Prompt comes from the song ... Have Yourself a Merry LITTLE Christmas ... which to us inspires making cards that feature Inchies and Twinchies (2" squares) in the design (or perhaps a twinchie-sized gift tag). "
I punched these reindeer from a sheet of Christmas paper put out by LIttle Yellow Bicycle with a 1" punch. Oh and my bestest friend Jeanne inspired me to make a card that will fit in a standard size envie! I liked working in this size. I believe I cut it 7"x 6 1/4". I also heat embossed the stamped greeting on this baby! I need to get some brown embossing powder, STAT! If you haven't already started playing along with the Jingle Belles, I encourage you to do so. The idea is to create 1 Christmas card a week and be ready to mail them come December. I need all the help I can get, maybe you do too? It's really fun too, in case you missed the other links, check it out here :)
Thanks for looking!

    Brown EP: I have some that smells like CHOCOLATE when it's heated. :)
