TMS466 Green Deer

Happy Saturday, everyone!  Have you ever seen a green deer?!  Well, I have one to share with you today!  My creative friend Wendy made a cute little card yesterday using the Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch (you can see her card HERE) and I loved it so much, I thought I would CASE it and make my own!  Her card is for Halloween, and mine is Christmas!  I recently got the Under the Mistletoe DSP, and I usually gravitate towards the smaller prints, but I thought I would challenge myself to use the bold Shaded Spruce here we go:

And here is the sketch prompt:

I stamped a deer from Dashing Deer in Shaded Spruce and diecut it with the Detailed Deer Thinlet, popping it up on a panel that had the corners rounded with my Envelope Punch Board.  The sentiment is from Many Blessings:

What I thought was so clever on Wendy's card was that she cut out some elements from DSP to create her accent piece, so I did the same, cutting a small flower and part of a leaf out, then layering them on top of a larger flower.  There is a tiny bit of Old Olive in the pattern as well, so I used the corner die from the Detailed Deer Thinlet to make a couple of swirly pieces:

My final addition was a glimmer dot in the center of the smaller flower!  While this is certainly out of my comfort zone, I think it turned out nicely!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!  Off to a party!

I don't think I'd ever put those 2 colors of green together, but surprisingly, it looks great! Love that big print in the dsp and great die cuts too! Thanks for playing along with the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge!

Wowza LeAnne, this is beautiful! What a lovely shade of green. I like the way the little deer pops on the white square, very eye catching!

Oh my goodness! This is an amazing Christmas card. I'm with Carol, I wouldn't think to pair two greens like this, but the results are beautiful. Thank you for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
