Merry Deer

Hi All!  Less than a week until Christmas with still lots to do.  Trying not to panic; how about you?  

My card today uses a Doodle Pantry's digital set, Merry Deer, that was previously sold by CDS.  Sentiment is also a digi from SU!/MDS.  I filled the image in with color and embellished my card with handmade snowflakes.  I also wrapped the main panel with embroidery floss in a Spirelli pattern.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Happy Campers Challenge 25 -- Anything Goes
Digi Galore Challenges -- Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge -- Y for You make your own embellishments (snowflakes & Spirelli String Art)

This is such a busy time of year... Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.  Enjoy your day!

  14. Wow, I've never thought to use twine around a scalloped circle like that. What a fab effect. Like when we were kids and used to create those patterns with wool around pins on a board. I can't remember what it was called, but it's a lovely effect.
