Grand Stag Oval

Hello, everyone!  I'm back again today with another winter/holiday card!  I like to make a couple of these a month but I have been falling behind.  The mood struck today so I went with it!  I created the background with Distress Oxides and the watercolour ink-smooshing technique.

Die:  Memory Box Grand Stag Oval Frame
Embossing folder:  Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow
Ribbon:  Crafty Ribbons Seam Binding
Background:  Distress Oxides (various shades of blue)

I was inspired by the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches 458:

I would also like to support these fun challenges: Crafter's Castle AG Optional More than One Fold 2/3 C10; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Washi Tape UE; Crafty Ribbons Facebook Page UE; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Happy Little Stampers June Watercolour Challenge Optional Smile UE; Hiding in my Craft Room Any Holiday 2/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Pile it On Holidays and/or Layers UE; Southern Girls AG 1E C10

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!
