GDP201 and TSOT420 Peaceful Deer

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Hope your week is going well!  I have a Christmas card to share today using the Global Design Project colors as well as the latest Try Stampin On Tuesday sketch:

I've been using mostly white card bases, so I thought I would use a colored one this time, Pretty Peacock.  I used a piece of Pretty Peacock DSP for my banner, and a Dashing Deer stamped in Merry Merlot for my circular focal point:

I used some Mossy Meadow cardstock for a few pine sprigs from the retired Pretty Pines dies, and "tied" them with some Cherry Cobbler thick baker's twine.  The sentiment is from Merry Christmas to all; I taped off most of the sentiment, inked up "peace" then pulled off the tape and stamped it on a tiny piece of Whisper White that was left over from some stitched diecutting! 

I did use a Tim Holtz embossing folder called Deer Knit because it looked so pretty with my deer and evergreens!

I added a white mat on the inside and stamped another sentiment and swirl from Merry Christmas to All:

Hope you enjoyed it!  And from Christmas to summer; remember my almost-blooming sunflowers?  Check these out, all courtesy of my birds at my bird feeder, LOL!

Don't they just make you SMILE!?  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Love these colours for your Christmas card LeAnne - so rich and welcoming and the embossed background just adds to the cosy feel. Fabulous sunflowers too - they always make me smile! We don’t have any in the garden this year - we grew tomatoes alongside ours last year and this year the bed turned into a self-seeded tomato bed with no room!

I love your Peaceful Deer Christmas card, LeAnne! It is just adorable! I haven't had a bird feeder in a while, but I remember all of the sunflowers I would get because of it! Thanks for sharing with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
