Nobel Deer

Just wanted to share this card with you. This was a stamped image given to me by Sue (Coffeestamper) over at Splitcoast Stampers. I had admired her masculine cards made with this image and Sue so kindly sent me a couple of these stamped images. I made this to honor Sue as she was selected as the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast.

I colored this image with Copics. The paper is from K & Company. The punches used are Martha Stewart Laurel Leaf Punch Around the Page and Branch Punch. The flowers are made with a Marvey Floral Punch. The leaves are a Sizzx Die. Spellbinders Fleur de Lis and Scalloped Squares were used. The Corners are the Cuttlebug Victorian dies and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I stickled the flowers and edges.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you and your family have a very Happy Easter!

Thank you for your compliment, too, Carol. A little note about the pocket planners from Oriental Trading Company. The covers were okay, but the calendars were on really awful paper!! Duh Me! I will try to remember to tell you where I am getting new ones. I have found some that look to be much better, but haven't made up my mind. Michaels sells them for $1 each I think.

How sweet of Sue to send you the images. Now, you have made a stunning, masculine surprise there. I love the colors of those flowers.
I just bought that laurel leaf punch over the weekend at Michael's in Valdosta, GA. It was in the back of the store on clearance..the complete set for $14.99. I put back the $32 one I was going to get. It will be later. Hopefully in clearance.
You have turned out another masterpiece, Carol. It is always fun to see what you do next.
