Merry Monday & The Challenge

I finally had time to play this afternoon in the craft room...I definitely wanted to play with the Merry Monday Challenge # 104 ...I missed it last week!  And forgive me Lesley, I am taking a little creative license with your sketch for The Challenge # 4 the legs of the "buck" are taking the place of the banners!!  And my "any shape is at the bottom instead of the top corner!
Paper:  PTI rustic cream, kraft, kraft pattern stripes, MFT steel gray
stamps:  PTI Masucline Motif, Winter Hills
dies:  Impression Obsession:  Deer Trio
versamark and white embossing powder

This was a difficult one because the colors were rather challenging!!
Thanks for taking a look, I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!
Heart Hugs,

  6. Great card Colleen! Had to smile about using the deer's legs for the banners...I think it's called artistic license! :0)
