(Lawn)scaping Challenge - woo hoo


I couldn't resist the current challenge on the (Lawn)scaping Challeng Blog - no, it's not a resist challenge, but a paper piecing challenge.  I wanted to make a Christmas card and this card went together so quickly, one thing followed another so easily.  I love this paper - Heidi Grace and used the back for the deer (dotted green - yes it is as dark a ruddy green as it looks).  But I like it.  Pearls were perfect for her antlers.  She needed a little scarf...
I found some wonderful ribbon I recently purchased at Michaels and the Hero Arts flowers are perfect.  I hope you like it too.  Sometimes a card makes itself... and this one did.
