Lawnscaping Challenge #68

Hi there!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I worked all weekend, so I spent the day at home relaxing and making cards.  I want to share with you a card I made for the current Lawnscaping Challenge.  This challenge is all about creating a project inspired by Pinterest.

The hardest part of this challenge was selecting just one pin!  I know I'm guilty of spending hours at a time on Pinterest.  This is the pin that inspired my card:

My mom and I moved to Virginia from Louisiana about 10 years ago, and one of my most favorite memories is seeing a deer for the first time.  Here is my take on the pin:

I know it is not even Halloween yet, but something about the recent chilly weather and this sweet deer put me in the holiday mood.  I used distress inks (faded jeans, milled lavender, and dusty concord) to make the background for the scene and used water drops to give the appearance of snow.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Let it Snow and is stamped on PTI Pure Poppy.  I embossed snowflakes around the sentiment.  I finished the scene off with pearl glitter mist.  Here is a closer look:

Hope everyone has a great week!  Thanks for coming by and happy crafting!
