February Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning, it's time for our February challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'
To make my card I used an old PB wood backed stamp which remains a firm favourite, it stamps beautifully and I love the sketchy look of the deer, even if my granddaughter asked me why it's leg has fallen off :D The background was created with Distress Inks and masking, sentiment is stamped. I matted onto black cardstock and then Cracked ice mirri card. The die cuts are Sizzix Tim Holtz. I'm happy with the way it turned out...and it's nice and flat for posting! 
I do hope you decide to play along with us this month, February may seem a little early to get your head around making Christmas cards, but come December you will be so glad you did!
We have some lovely new teamies join us this month, I'm so impressed with the beautiful cards they've created (think I need to up my game as my daughter would say!), the rest of the team have produced wonderful cards as always, so just visit HERE to enjoy, and to add your own beautiful creations.
Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

Oh gosh, Chris! You think you need to up your game? Then what am I gonna do? Your card today has captured my heart, even if the stag's leg IS falling off! LOL - actually, I have a bunch of these PB wood mount stamps, too, and love them. Wasn't quite sure how to use them, but you have inspired me, and I hope to case your idea! It's beautiful! hugs, de

What a stunning card, Chris. As I was scrolling through the Penny Black Saturday Challenge entries, this one stopped me dead in my tracks! Something about it's simplicity and artistry. And that soft background with the deer as contrast. Love everything about this. Thanks for sharing at PBSC. Hope to see you again soon. Hugs,
