Nordic noel flowers

I love the reindeer in the nordic noel stamp set from a•muse studio, and the dove is great too.  the Noel is perfect, and those tend to be the only three stamps in the set I use.  it isn't that the other stamps aren't good, it's that I don't know what to do with them.  Take, for example, the little flower border - so cute, but what to do with it?  I challenged myself to use it on this card:

The reindeer and flowers are embossed, and the pine branches and snowflake are punched.  A bold image like this is great on a masculine card.

Challenges:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - colors
Crafty Hazelnut's - snowflakes
I ♥ 2 Stamp - sketch
One Stop Craft - heat embossing
TandaStamps - manly

Nice masculin colours make this a great manly Christmas card.

I like the flower border, it is quite folk arty, it would be perfect to making wrapping paper and tags tied up with raffia.

Thanks for joining in with the Tanda Teaser!
