Christmas in July at Bugaboo stamps

Today's challenge over at Catch the Bug is Christmas in July.  So I took Christmas Boy 2, and Bobblehead Reindeer into Adobe Photoshop Elements and combined them to make this little card.

I printed the image onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet and then colored it with Copic markers.
Reindeer - E25
Antlers - E70
Hooves - W3
Boy - E000, E00
Glasses - B000
Hair - E33
Hat and Suit - R27
Pants - G07
Shoes - C6

I airbrushed B02 around the image before removing it from the Spellbinders die, also around the sentiment which I computer generated.  I added Sparkly Fluff to the hat band, tassle and trim on the boy's suit.  I also added it to the deer's chest.  I added brown Fun Flock to the deer's tail and mane.  I used glaze pens to color the deer's nose, and the ornaments around the little boy.  The DP is from the Christmas Mint collection by SEI.  Finished size is 6" square.  Be sure to check out the Catch the Bug challenge blog for more fabulous creations from the Design Team.  And play along for a chance to win....
