Just Us Girls #220 - Color Challenge

Hi everyone!  Last weekend before Christmas!  Are you ready?  I've just got a few things to purchase and I'll be done!
 
Just Us Girls has a great color challenge this week.  I love these colors that Sue T. chose.
 
I didn't need any more Christmas cards, but I did need a tag for my hubby's gift.  I've been admiring this Woodland Deer die from Memory Box being used around blogland lately and was wishing I had purchased it.  I was looking through my dies for something to use on this tag, and lo and behold I found this die!  I seriously need to inventory my supplies!  Anyway, I die cut it from early espresso card stock.  Before mounting it on the kraft tag, I cut some snow mounds from sahara sand cardstock and added some clear rock candy distress glitter and some fresh snow ink to it.  I added a piece of washi tape at the top and burlap ribbon tied with a button and twine.  The sentiment was stamped in real red ink.  I also added some fresh snow ink around the edges of the tag.  I think I got all the colors in there.
 
This deer reminds me of the many bucks we are seeing in our backyard lately.  They've been in my husband's garden eating whatever leftovers they can find!  This evening I let our dog out and saw three bucks in the yard.  After Lizzie came in I saw what I thought was two of the bucks fighting.  I opened the door and could hear their antlers smacking against each other!  They were fighting for quite a while.  It was a very cool sight to see!
 
I hope you stop by these blogs to see what the design team created with these colors.

Beautiful tag. I love the deer also, and this color combo.
I am like you on the supplies, I definitely need to get organized as I often find I have 2 of something. Maybe that will be a New Year's Resolution (again!!!)
Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

That must have been an amazing site, the two bucks fighting! The most wildlife I see is the neighbors cat!

Great tag! Merry Christmas!
