Inky Paws Challenge 32

Friday, May 27, 2016

Hi there, Happy Friday!
I am still guesting over at Newton's Nook Designs and today, I am participating in their challenge Inky Paws Challenge!

Isn't this a fun theme!?
Here is my card ;-)

So of course I thought of their new die set Points & Plumes.
I actually made a totally different card using the arrow dies, let's just say it looked better in my head...*LOL*

I wanted to use their other new die set Splendid Stags also, and here it is;-) Just gorgeous, right!!? I wanted to borrow a pair of sunglasses from Newton but they were too big for this handsome guy. Then I saw this party hat in the In Slow Motion set and it was a perfect size! I heat embossed it with gold on Basic Black cardstock, fussy cut it, then some glitter was applied with my trusty glitter pen! I die cut three more stags from the Basic Black cardstock to give some dimension. Those beautiful arrows were die cut from the Black Glimmer Paper. I heat embossed one of the wreaths from the Happy Little Thoughts set to frame the beautiful stag. 

Here's something I don't normally do...I decorated the inside! 
I had these arrows die cut for another card (which just didn't come together right no matter what...) so I just added my B&W stripes washi tape to repeat what is on the front of the card, then mounted my beautiful arrows. 

I sewed three rows of fringes, added some gold sequins and one big black sequin, done! 

I am not sure what occasion this card is for, but some kind of celebration since my stag is wearing a party hat, right? *giggle*
