Postcard for Santa

I love to make collage cards, as it is a way to use up the odd pieces of papers.
Starting with a piece of music paper.
Followed by a home made backing paper using Viva stamps.
A small Graphics 45,  left over paper panel.
The only thing new is the stamped postcard by Inkadinkado on top of my stamped french script.
Look close and even the red layers are different shades.
The wooden deer is painted brown, , and the ribbon and bow to finish.
All shading is antique linen and vintage photo distress inks.

Challenges I hope this will fit are-
Just for Fun,  Favourite Shapes
                     As you can see I couldn't make my mind up between oblongs or squares, but having to pick I would say oblongs.
Craft Your Days Away   Buttons and Bows
Craft Room  Challenge Travel Postcards
