Deer Little Fallow

This poor little fellow's coat of glossy accents is still wet which is why he looks a little milky.  Given a few hours it should be clear with just a hint of twinkle as I sprinkled a little glitter on his spotty coat to give him extra sparkle.

The kraft and gold piece of mulberry paper came from a set of Japanese papers I had been hoarding (and admiring)  for ages.  It was a present from my one of my very thoughtful sisters-in-law who know exactly what I like.  Trouble was I liked it so much I had trouble breaking it open.  Every time I thought about using one I would gaze lovingly at all the beautiful Japanese papers inside for a good good long time and then put the pack away again - couldn't bring myself to cut into one.

The deer was cut from a piece of white card that had been stamped with a polka dot pattern from WMS Gingham and Co. and embossed in gold.  The banner was stamped with a sentiment from WMS Compliments of the Season and embossed in gold.  I wet embossed the edges of a WMS Snowflake 2 with gold and laid some gold pieces into the centre.  The bottom right corner was finished off with a few stars from Frantic Stamper's Village Sky die set.

I used Mojo Monday Sketch 471 as inspiration, and had intended following Julee's brilliant sketch faithfully, but I thought the sentiment would read better left to right rather than down the card, so I rotated the sketch 90 degrees counterclockwise.

I am also entering this card in the 52 Christmas Card October Technique Challenge - to use embossing 

And as they have my favourite kind of challenge (Anything Goes) this week, I'll be entering my card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thanks for stopping by - especially if you take the time to leave some positive feedback,
