Deer Silhouette Christmas

Happy Saturday, all!  I have a very quick card to share today, as I have a stamp party and am looking forward to seeing my crafty friends!  This card uses Amy's sketch from FMS:

and the color palette from a new-to-me (thanks to Vicky) challenge, Rainbow Card Challenge:

I've been pushing these diecut deer around my desk for weeks, trying to decide what to do with them, and when I saw the challenges, I knew I could combine them!  The deer are cut from Early Espresso; I mounted them on a diecut oval DSP, then I adhered them to a piece of Kraft cardstock and a Very Vanilla card base:

It's hard to see, but I stamped a few pine boughs at the top left and bottom right and sponged the edges for a rustic look.  I stamped a sentiment in Soft Suede and it was done!  I love how the porous fibers in the Kraft cardstock give it a rustic look!

And in honor of my friend Vicky, who is a guest designer today at Addicted to CAS, I am playing along there as well, as their challenge is "Creature":

Thanks for popping in today--be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge, too!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
