Nordic Deer

The look of cross stitch without the hours of hard work!  I cheated and used a Papermania stamp, which I think looks great stamped in red ink.
 This one is a customer order for someone who doesn't like cute or sentimental cards, so I went for a Nordic look with a red, white a kraft colour combo which I just love on Christmas cards.  The papers are Papermania, Home for Christmas, I've used Papermania stickers too, for the "Mum" sentiment.
To add some interest to the layering, I've used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set, and I've finished off with some baker's twine, a charm, pearls, and some red gems.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
City Crafter - #189 - Red, Craft and White
Crafty Boots - Christmas
Melonheadz Friends - Christmas
Through the Purple Haze - Use Your Favourite Christmas Colours - Red, Kraft, White
DRS Designs - #100 - Anything Goes
