Merry Monday #38 - Vintage Deer

Hi Folks,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge this week. I wanted a Vintage look so I stamped the background with En Francais and the splotchy stamp from French Foliage and sponged the edges. For the deer I stamped twice, once on Very Vanilla and the other on Crumb Cake.  I cut out the deer stamped on Crumb Cake and masked the head and tail and stamped the snowflakes on his back. I didn't want the pennant layer to hide the image so I used a Window Sheet for my sentiment and finished off with the satin ribbon and a pearl.

Stamps: Flourishes - Flourished Christmas, S/U's Snowflakes (R), French Foliage, En Francias BG, Curly Cute
Card and Papers: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Window Sheets
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Stazon Black
Finishing Touches: Early Espresso Satin Ribbon, Pearl
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sponge, 1 1/4" Square Punch, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape

I am also linking my card to the CHNC Challenge 95.

Thanks for popping in today.
