I was inspired by the earthy colors of the plaids in the photo.  I used stamps from Clear and Simple Stamps and some plaid patterned paper to make a somewhat rustic holiday card design.  I stamped a deer image from the Oh Deer set on a cream panel, then framed it with the oval frame from the Curly Label Frames 1 set.  The frame was finished with a kraft curved banner, stamped with the "holiday cheer" sentiment from the Party Elements:  Winter Woodlands set.  I layered a plaid patterned paper panel beneath the image, then added strips of red and gold cardstock along the top edge of the patterned panel.  For a whimsical touch, I added a red enamel dot "nose" to the deer image.
