Die-lirious and Punchy Challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters

Today is our new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
Terri is our hostess and she has chosen the theme of
Die-lirious and Punchy, meaning get out those dies and/or
much neglected punches!!

One of the things I love about being on The Sisterhood Design Team is,
it gives me an opportunity to use a few of my wonderful supplies
that I can't use on other DT's as long as I stick to the theme!

During the making of this card, my fellow "sistah" and team mate and friend
Dar was here visiting with me for a few days.
We decided to get together and make a few of our challenge cards together,
making it even more fun!!

I used a gorgeous background paper, used a die to cut the "snow drifts",
(which I added glitter to)....
then comes the fun part...the deer!

A few years ago I purchased a Brenda Walton Sizzlits Strip die
called Woodland Deer.
It cuts an entire row of deer and trees.
I used a partial section of it for my woodsy scene.
I also have to admit, this is the first time I have used it....
just goes to show you I have way too much "stuff"!!

I cut the die twice and paper pieced the trees.
I used 2 old SU round punches for the sentiment.
Lastly a ribbon was added for a pop of color!

Now head on over to The Sisterhood and see what my "sistahs" 
have to inspire you to join in with us!!

Entering the following challenges:
Mod Squad .... Winter and a Die
A Snowflake Promise .... ATG with a Christmas/Winter Theme
Pixie's Snippets Playground ....Snippets #198
Word Art Wednesdays .... ATG

Too much stuff? Is that possible? Gee, I wouldn't know (my nose is growing). I would hate to divulge how much stuff I have that I haven't used yet. I need to do a self-challenge or something. That sounds like so much fun to do your DT cards together! And look how beautiful this turned out! What a pretty snowflake designer paper sky, and love the pretty glitter and those deer at the base of the snowy hills. What a fantastic card!
