Stampin' Up! Peaceful Deer for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I created this card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. Can you guess if our challenge is theme oriented, color oriented or sketch oriented?

Did you guess correctly?
Welcome to our weekly hop! If you came from Jaimie's blog, thank you for visiting me! If you just are beginning with me, the list of hoppers are at the bottom. You are in for a real treat!

I began with a Real Red cardstock base, adhered a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper, then a piece of Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper. Measurements are listed below. 

The sentiment from the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set is stamped on a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock and is inked with VersaMark and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I punched it out with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.

I added two Gold Holly Leaves and a Pearl Basic Jewel, which I colored with my Dark Real Red Stampin' Blends. I adhered the sentiment with Dimensionals.

For the inside I used the Very Best Occasions Stamp Set, Mossy Meadow ink, Very Vanilla cardstock and my Real Red Stamp N Write Marker.
