'Tis the Season for my Christmas Deer

My friend, Holly, invited me to be a Guest Designer at her 'Tis the Season Challenge blog. I love challenges! And this one keeps Christmas alive 365 days of the year. This time around it's an Inspiration Challenge. You can see the photo below and create where it takes you - wreath, deer, wood, whatever you like!

Here are the rules:
1. Your project must be a new Christmas project created for this challenge.
2. Link back to 'Tis the Season or use the Challenge Graphic within your post.
3. Please don't combine more than 4 challenges (including this one!).
4. HAVE FUN! (Okay, I added that one.)

 You have 2 full weeks to take part in this challenge, so pull out a favorite Christmas stamp or two and get busy! Now here's my pretty literal interpretation of the photo for my card:
I first stamped the Hardwood stamp in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White card stock, then stamped the Christmas Deer image in Cajun Craze and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I layered Cajun Craze card stock under the white layer and put both on a Marina Mist card. The color combo is from Stampin' Up!'s Color Coach. I love that thing! Anyway, I used a hostess set called Warmth & Wonder for the sentiment.

Welcome to 'Tis The Season, Terry! :) Glad to have you joining us for the month. I'm kind of kicking myself for not buying the stamp set with the deer head. :( Great take on the inspiration challenge. The deer is perfect for it.

You did a great job with the challenge Terry! Wonderful card. I always feel a little sad when I put the Xmas stamps away.
