CCMC530 Dashing Deer

It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:
I'm gradually building up my stash of Christmas cards, as I have fun playing with my new Christmas stamps and papers. I've used the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper on this card, and taken my colour scheme from there - it's Merry Merlot, Sahara Sand and Copper. I love the vintage feel!

The stamp set I've used is Dashing Deer, and I've stamped my favourite 'baroque' deer in Merry Merlot, and used the Detailed Deer framelits to cut it out. I embossed my sentiment (from the same set) in Copper, and also added some copper thread. The background looked a little plain, so I stamped some of the small flowers in Sahara Sand (stamped off twice) and added a teeny pearl to the centres. I also shimmered up the antlers with some Wink of Stella.

I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

  1. I absolutely adore this color combination! Simply gorgeous! This was one of my favorite sets from the holiday catalog and I have yet to play with it, but I will certainly be casing your beautiful design!
