Merry Monday #95: Use an Animal on your Card


I have a funny card to share today...at least I think it's funny according to my sense of humor.  This week's Merry Monday #95 challenge is to Use an Animal on your Holiday card.  I just received Fresh Squeezed Stamps Close Your Ear Deer stamp set last weekend and it was still sitting on my desk...great timing.
This cute little deer silhouette has so many possibilities...he can be dressed up for almost any occasion.  I almost put a Santa hat on him, but really wanted to use one of the cute sentiments that comes with the set, so I decorated his "rack" with a string of holiday lights.  The lights are from Cheery Lynn (Christmas Light Swag) and instead of the lights that come with it, I used sequins.  He is a very festive deer, so he got a rhinestone collar, nose and eye too.  I mounted my deer on an Instant Camera Die cut from Lil Inker Designs.  The sentiment is stamped on another Lil Inker die cut (Gift Bow Topper Die) and the "ho ho ho" is from PTI's Tiny Treat Christmas, the perfect scale.  

I have quite a bit of time to decide who is going to receive this Christmas card...has to be someone with a good sense of humor or else a slightly warped one like me!
