Christmas Deer

Happy Friday! I made this card for the Limited Supplies Challenge at Spit Coast. The deer and sentiment are from Asela Hopkins' new stamp set, Christmas Blessings, from Gina K Designs. The snowflakes in the background are from The Magic of Christmas, also from Gina K.

The challenge was to use only eyelets and ribbons as embellishments and only one piece of designer paper. We were also limited to no punches or die cut type tools.

I colored the deer with Koh-i-noor pencils, blended with OMS. I cut them out and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I sponged the background and then stamped the snowflakes with white pigment ink. I also added glitter to the snowflakes and to the foreground.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fun weekend!
