Happy Holidays Deer

When it comes to buying new stamps I'm a bit of a ditherer!
Will I use them enough? Are they versatile? Can I really afford them?
By the time I've made a decision, the sets that I want are usually out of stock.
That's exactly what happened when I went stamp shopping last week.
As a last resort, I bought this WPlus9 Winter Woodland set
WOW!
I got lucky. They are fabulous.

Here's my first play with them.



 I followed the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch - (just rotating it).

This was such a simple card to make. 
I stamped the trees in pale grey and then added my die-cut reindeer, popped up on foam pads.
I finished with the sentiment and a scattering of sequins.


I really love how this turned out, so I made another, just changing the colours.
Which do you prefer - red or blue?
