Joy Love and Peace - Framed

I've got another Christmas card for the box today!   I used the wonderful deer stamp from the same stamp set I used on my last post - Rustic Christmas by Waltzingmouse.
I stamped the deer with Versamark Ink and embossed him with gold embossing powder - then fussy cut him out.  I made the frame by nesting two Stitched Edge Rectangles inside each other.  I cut it out of  Coredinations paper and layered it all over a piece of Barnwood patterned paper.
I'm linking my card to the following challenges:
Merry Monday - A Christmas card with a frame on it
Splitcoaststampers - Inspiration Challenge - be inspired by something on the Bohemian Etsy Shop
I was inspired by this charm:
 I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
Stamps:  Rustic Christmas - Waltzingmouse
Ink:  Versamark
Paper:  Kraft, Rustic Cream, True Black - PTI,  Cordinations, DP Barnwood/Paper Pizazz
Accessories:  Stitched Edge Rectangle dies - Waltzingmouse, gold embossing powder, foam dots. heat tool.

The embossing on the deer head looks amazing especially with the cream border around the edge and I love the wood paper in the background. I do LOVE that little deer ornament!! Hugs, Anne xx
