Christmas Deer

It's time for another challenge from the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  This week we're feeling frosty and the challenge is: Winter Wonderland.  We have three awesome sponsors:

I was given this gorgeous image from The Paper Shelter!  Well, I have to say that EVERY image I've seen from The Paper Shelter is gorgeous; but I do really love this one.
 I was inspired by a card I saw earlier this week that was in shades of lilac and teal; and thus my non-traditional Christmas color combo.  I printed the image out a bit large and was running short on time, so I decided to make a CAS card and I really love how it turned out.  The left hand strip and the doily "snowflake" were cut out of an irridescent glitter paper and the shimmer is absolutely stunning.  You can see it better in the photo below.
A bit of mulberry paper and some DMC floss finish it off.  I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us.  I can't wait to see what's in your winter wonderland.

Stamps: The Paper Shelter "Holy Night" digi; Verve "Peace on Earth" sentiment

Love your color combination, Heather, and that's a neat idea to put the button in the center of your snowflake.
