Lost in the Woods

I had a bit of trouble when making this card. I stamped the kraft card with my Hero Arts woodgrain stamp and then put it aside while I made other elements. When I went to stick it all together, I couldn't finds the kraft layer. I spent ages searching for it until I gave up and cut a new piece, and just as I was inking up the stamp I noticed the original piece was right in front of me .....the stamping was so realistic it had 'disappeared' into the wooden table!

The reindeer was an image from a CD that I brought into Silhouette Studio, traced, cut and stamped with the woodgrain stamp. The white trees and 'noel' are also Silhouette cuts and the clock dial is a Tim Holtz die which I spray with gold mist.  I used snowfall acetate over the top.

I'd like to enter:
City Crafter Wood and Frame - this challenge was my original inspiration - the clock dial as the frame and the woodgrain stamp for the wood. As I was linking up I realised that I might have slightly misinterpreted and sorry if I got it a bit wrong.
