Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop

Today I'm excited to be joining the Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop.  
This is our photo inspiration.  Greens and blues, white and silver.
And here is my inspired card -  I focused on the shape of the mirror, the white deer and green tree.  I used Tim Holtz  Baroque die with Brushed Silver card for the panel.
I embossed one of the lovely sentiments from O Holy Night in silver embossing powder onto the silver frame. It really looks beautiful on the card.
I inked the tree from In the Meadow (stamps and dies) using Tropical Teal on the bottom half and Simply Chartreuse on the top half.  I added the little die cut bird from In the Meadow with a foam dot.  I added a teal eye with a Gelly Roll Pen.  I die cut the deer from In The Meadow die set 3 times and layered them together for more thickness.  I knotted a piece of Tinsel String around his neck. Here you can see how everything is layered up on foam dots.
I can't wait to see everyone's creations for this beautiful inspiration photo!  Are you joining in too?  You'll find the link for the blog hop on Nicole's blog here.

I love the things we learn on these hops. Now, see, using silver embossing powder for the sediment on a silver card is genius. It looks like it was ENGRAVED!! And I love all the other elements of this beautiful card, too, Julia, and how you pulled them from the inspiration photo!! Hugs, Darnell
