Elegant Deer

Quiet holiday weekend with just the 2 of us and today hubby got the outside Christmas lights up--yah! Lights are my favorite decoration & I don't think he's ever gotten them up before Dec. 1st. I got most of the dusting done so tomorrow I can decorate inside. Decided I'd earned a break & made a card tonight. My stamps are by Penny Black: dancing deer, 40-258; lace trims, 30-181; the wonder, 30-040. The printed paper is MME & the inks are Memento Nautical Blue, Rhubarb Stalk and Distress Ink spun sugar. The deer is sprayed with Glimmer Mist for a lovely sparkle I can't figure out how to photograph, unfortunately. I'm entering the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, SSS Monday and SSS Wednesday
Thanks for stopping by--I always enjoy reading your comments.
