With all the excitement about Thanksgiving - I almost forgot that this is Friday! I know you're probably thinking there is no way I could miss that it is BLACK Friday - but I think I only once went out shopping on Black Friday, and said I'd never do it again! Helps now to be in a super small town, where there isn't enough shopping for there to be any point anyway!
So...a little while ago I realized that since it was Friday - I should have something for Unity Friends with Flair! So I sat down for a bit to play and came up with this:
I was also inspired by the colors in this picture from this week's Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World:
It also didn't hurt that I received my order from the Unity Brown Thursday sale in the mail today, or that I had this Lucille 6x6 paper pad from Basic Grey that I was dying to cut into! Oh - I just LOVE the colors in that paper - and they went perfect with this little deer stamp from Unity!
I started off by cutting the doily and circle with a Spellbinder's Die and some of the pattern paper from the paper pad.
I colored the little deer with Copics, then fussy cut it out to mount on the circle. The sentiment was stamped with two coordinating colors of Paptertrey ink on a hand trimmed banner - then I folded in the corners to give it a 3-D look. I mounted the deer with foam adhesive, and placed its feet around the popped up sentiment banner.
The background was embossed with my Cuttlebug, and I rounded off the corners. I also wrapped some jute twine around that layer and tied a big loose bow before attaching the doily piece with foam adhesive.
This is such a lumpy bumpy card - but I LOVE it!
Also linking this up to Paper Issues challenge this month - 50 Shades of Basic Grey!
So...if you braved the shopping malls and such - I hope you stayed safe and got what you were looking for! I on the other hand...had lots of fun making this instead! Thanks for stopping by - and have a wonderful weekend!
