Plaid Deer ~ HSS249, Merry Monday 218

Hello everyone!  What a wonderful sketch we've got for you this time over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!   As usual our challenge runs for two weeks, so you have plenty of time to play along...or enter a few times if you'd like!
I went with a Christmas theme again this week and used the inspiration from Merry Monday 218 to help me along.  I'm a sucker for plaid and I especially love plaid at Christmas.  Another thing I love is this now retired deer head image from the set called {Remembering Christmas}.  I stamped the image of the reverse side of the red plaid and fussy cut it out.  I thought the coordinating tree DSP made a complimentary background from my deer.   

The sparkle snowflake is a packaging decoration I've been hanging onto since last Christmas.  I though it was too pretty to toss in the garbage and I figured I could recycle it onto a card someday.  It fits on this one nicely, I think.  I layered one of the wooden snowflakes from last year's holiday catalog on top of it as well.  
A few layered banners and my card is complete.  I just couldn't manage to place the doily element into this theme, but for the most part I adhered to the sketch pretty well!

Here's a list of my supplies.....

Stamps: Remembering Christmas
Ink: Black, Versamark
Paper: Warmth and Cheer, Black, Real Red, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Wooden Snowflake, Burlap Ribbon, White EP, Sparkle snowflake (recycled)

  2. What a great idea to use the plaid design for the deer
