Merry Monday #180 - Reindeer

 

Hello friends.  Playing along with Merry Monday and the challenge this week is to use a reindeer on your card.  This card came together so easily (like maybe 5 minutes!) and I really liked how it turned out.  Then I realized I had used a deer die cut, and NOT a reindeer...grrrr!  So it's been sitting on my desk all week staring at me, and the more I look at it, the more I like it, so I'm going with it...just pretend she's really young (and that's why she doesn't have any antlers yet) and is mesmerized by her first snowfall! 


I used a white card base and added a  DSP (LOTV 6x6 pad) layer that I cut using a SSS die (Wavy Scallop Stitches).  I die cut the deer from a TH Movers and Shapers die with kraft cs and then sponged it with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress inks.  My sentiment (PTI's O Holy Night) was stamped with Early Espresso ink.  A piece of bakers twine (The Twinery) finished off this oh so simple card.   
                                 

          

There's still a few days to play along, so check out all the great inspiration and play along.  You can find all the info you need right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
