Blue Christmas Deer


I wanted to try out some new dies (Poppystamps Nordic Flourishes Background and Nordic Deer) - needless to say I was not disappointed - they cut beautifully despite being so intricate and the deer in particular is so clever with the way the legs have been designed and I just love the lace!  There is a shadow die for the deer but I've opted not to use it here.

A couple of challenges caught my eye and inspired this creation

Die Traumfabrik #123 - has the movie Cobalt Blue for inspiration;

Christmas Kickstart Challenge #82 - I added a touch of Gold for that Midas Touch;

Little Red Wagon Challenge #738 - Show some snow (this background flourish die is stylised snow flurry isn't it);

Get Creative Challenges #127 - Snow Much Fun;

 Peace on Earth #55 - The bottom right image in this inspiration pic made me think of this Nordic Flourishes background die;

I'd also like to enter the following challenges

NBUS Challenge #58 - The Nordic Deer and Nordic Flourishes Background die are both NBUS;
Four Seasons January 2024 Challenge - Anything Winter Goes;
Crafty Animals Challenge #79 - Anything Goes with Animals;

I'd also like to give a shout out to a new challenge

Word Power Challenge #1 - Use a sentiment that's prominent!
