Marianne Design Divas challenge

The next challenge on the Marianne Design Divas blog is to incorporate an animal into your project.  MD have some adorably cute animal dies, as well as more traditional dies like this stag's head with proud antlers.  And, there are stamps and lots of sheets of pictures you could choose from too.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Buddly Crafts and I've linked the MD items I used to their shop - so you can find them easily!

My card is simple as I'm suffering another round of dental problems .. .. and Mr Mojo got lost along with a filling!  I love this sheet of pretty paper from the Christmas Time pack and didn't want to cover it up, so I've simply distressed and inked the edges then matted with gold and ivory pearl papers, adding the embossed faux stitching around the edges of the mat layers.

I've die cut the bauble and embossed it with the new snowflake folder to fix to the card, adding a pretty tulle and silk ribbon bow to the top.  The stag's head I inked and distressed before 3d fixing to the bauble.  I used some oddments of the gold pearl paper to die cut the trellis, it's still my favourite, and the text, then finishing off with the little pearls.

Marianne Design product I used:

The Christmas Card blog challenge is anything goes, so I can enter my card with them.  And also with Pixie's Snippets challenge as my die cuts are from snippets of paper and card in my bit box.

Thank you for stopping to take a peek, and I hope you will pass by again soon.
