A bit of an experiment playing with images and my photogrpahs

Good morning everyone, I know you are probably all enjoing this very unseasonal weather but I am suffering with all this heat and I want Autumn to come back pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!
Anyway, onto my card. What can I say about it? I was ready to bin it but a couple of friends told me they love it!


The background is my own photograph taken through my sitting room window. The sleigh is an svg from Scrapping Table to which I have added a scroll. The "reindeer" - antelope really but heyho, it's cardmakers licence - is an image from CorelDraw7 which, in computer years, is ancient LOL. I have converted it to an svg then strung them together, but the small one is too small as it's legs are so thin they broke as I pulled them of the cutting 
mat :o( The sentiment is my own Scal image and it, and the swirl, is covered with Glamour Dust. I drew the star with gluepen and dusted it too. Personally I am still not too sure that it's worth saving but I will be guided by all of you :o)
