Dashing Deer, PP416

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the wonderful and talented Anne Marie is our hostess with a sketch challenge.

I've been wanting to take my new Dashing Deer stamp set and dies out for a whirl, and this was the perfect opportunity. I love the pretty pattern in this deer image. The patterned paper is long retired and is from a kit. While I was at it, I made two cards, so now I have two more cards in my Christmas stash!

I even stamped my card insides and envelopes, so these two cards are ready to go.

I'm also playing along with the challenge at Jingle Belles, which is to use any kind of animal on your card.

(All supplies Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted)
Stamp Sets: Dashing Deer, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Patterned Paper: Merry Moments Simply Scrappin'
Ink Pads: Charcoal (Hero Arts)
Tools: Big Shot, Detailed Deer Thinlits
Accessories: Pearls

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 
Inky hugs :)

Good Morning Sandy,
This looked like a complicated layout, but you did a super job. I do like all the layers. and how you make them look so perfect.
Have a blessed day.

Sandy your elegant deer is beautiful and perfectly paired with your chosen papers. Love the decoration on the inside and the envelope too!

Sandy, you are the mistress of all styles! I like your combination of papers, then the elegant grey deer against them. I finally cracked and have ordered Dashing Deer and hope it will arrive tomorrow. I'd talked to myself sternly and told myself I could only have three new Christmas things.... and this will make four.

Sandy...I cant tell you how much I love you cards. Your mind works in a wonderful way! Everything you do is so elegant...

Sandy, believe it or not, this is one stamp set I have resisted purchasing….up until this week. I love the mix of layers and patterns. The perfectly-placed bling is awesome, as well! I also love that not only did you stamp the inside, but you added a layer in there as well. You KNOW that is something I’m going to start doing. Because you can NEVER have too many layers. Just fabulous, my friend! :)
