Deer Wishes (Doodle Pantry image)

Hello, everyone!  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome a new Bloglovin' follower Kathy Tollefson - so nice to have you here!

I have been busy making lots of Christmas cards!  Here's one featuring an adorable image I won back in February from Doodle Pantry called Deer Wishes.  I decided to use the pre-coloured image because it already looks so good!  I inked around the edges with distress ink to create a vintage look.

I recently signed up for Inspired by Stamping's newsletter and I got some wonderful freebies - I've been using them a lot lately!  Here I've included their Merry Christmas printable, striped tag, and red snowflake circle. I inked around the edge of the printable to give it a vintage look. I really like the colour inspiration this month over at Inspired by Stamping (see below) and this is my third entry in their challenge!  I really want to win some of their stamps!  

The designer paper here is almost completely covered but it's MME Sunshine.  I used a few dies: gingerbread man and cat (Impression Obsession), and stitched flag (Simon Says Stamp).  The poinsettia is from Recollections and the beautiful glittery ribbon and trim were given to me in a RAK by a very kind and generous bloggy friend. 

I added a doily, snowflake button, twine, pearl strip, and snowflake charm, all from my stash.  The 'Tis the season and tree tags were part of a Christmas prize package I won last month from Colette's Cosmic Colours challenge.
