~Another Make It Monday Deer~

This is the card I was working on first for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday 39.

Somehow, it got finished second.

Isn't that how it goes? ;)

The side "flaps" ARE anchored down with Scor-Tape.

I needed to say that because the pictures look like they are blowing in the breeze.

I asked my 13 year old, "Is this too odd to share?".

She thought it was cool.

I'm cool with that. ;)

Can you tell I like the deer from In the Meadow?

The other Papertrey Ink sets that came to play:

Grunge Me (bulls-eye,splatter and sentiment)
Shape Up Snowman Accessories (squiggly lines)~ I am seriously loving those lines.
I used my Scor-Pal to score...then folded to fit my "DP" within the card.

The sentiment was stamped on a miniature Spellbinder's eleven die (I cropped it smaller and folded it like a bead back).

There is some texture to it-it was a leftover piece that was embossed with a Sizzix wood embossing folder.

I didn't intend to do this unconventional...but it's growing on me.  

It reminds me of a Southwestern shawl.

Hope it's not too out there for ya. ;)

Thank you for stopping in. ;)
