Another Christmas card

Out of all the Christmas cards I've made, I think I like this one the best. For some reason, my cards seem awfully washed out on here (yeah, "some" reason - couldn't be that suddenly I'm taking crappy pictures, could it?). This is done with Close to Cocoa, Tangerine Tango (again, not sure it's the right SU! name), and a gold metallic from The ribbon is from May Arts, I think it's copper. The image is from Flourishes. Watercoloring to paint the reindeer. I love this image so much. I got it last year and I think I used it for many of my cards.

Again, not traditional colors. The orange really makes this pop. And I have to order a few dozen packs of it because I just love it so much. It's a great color. Why is it SU! has such wonderful in-colors that last such a short amount of time?

I have two other cards in the works, as well as a couple of felted purses that aren't fulling properly now that we have a front loading washer (or regular washer took a dive last week), so I'll have to hand felt them, then I'll take pictures. I promise I'll try to take better care when taking pics. I've just not cared enough to take more than one or two pics, instead of my usual 20 or 30.
