Deer Fancy!

Hello Friends!

My friend Maggie over at SCS is on the Perfect Sentiments Design Team.  They are having a four part blog hop.  I am happy to say, I have completed all four cards with this one here.  The final challenge for me was Bingo with a sentiment (link to challenge below).  For my bingo card, I picked ribbon, glitter and bakers twine.  I started this card a few times, and finally came up with this.

I had played around with my distress inks a while back and made this tag using Stampers Anonymous Mini Holidays sets.  I used the emboss resist technique along with the white stain to soften the tag.  I like the tag, but was not sure what to do with it.  Bingo!! I figured it out today.  I put it on a card using MME background paper with glitter at the bottom. The glitter is a bit hard to see in the picture, but that red is nice and sparkly.  The ribbon came from my stash.

A closer look at the tag, completed with bakers twine and a button.

Finally the inside with more emboss resist and a sentiment by Printworks Collection.  This is one of my favorites for the holidays.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
