It's simply a 'Deer'

Hey there Crafty Ones - today post is for
the new Challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More
and I couldn't be happier when I saw the beautiful mood board
for our Photo Inspiration Challenge.
You will know what caught my eye as
you will have seen me using this gorgeous deer from 
a few times now and what got me excited also was
the amazing ribbon I used which came all the way from Scotland
with my Christmas card - how perfect.
This was a simple card to make using black card stock and 
gold paper to frame my deer.
 I simply smotheredthe black card with Versamark  
and heat embossed in gold.
Added some Inka Gold splatters,
that beautiful ribbon and some 
Starform strips down either side.
My Merry Christmas sentiment was also
heat embossed and from Gina K Designs.
Yay! my first Christmas card for 2018.

I love looking to see what others pick out
for Photo Inspiration Challenges and
the Team have created a gorgeous variety
for you to oooh and aaah over so
go check them all out Here
and come join us. 
Love to see you in our Gallery!
Thanks for dropping in.

The stencil was the perfect thing for this challenge Ina and what luck to get the ribbon to match as well. :)

You've translated elements of the photo into a very classy, stylish card! Swooning over the gold deer's head and the ever-so-lovely ribbon. Perfect timing for its arrival!
