Back with blogging!

Hello all!
I hope there are still some of you out there after my short blogging break?  I'm starting off with the latest challenge from the team at Time Out and the theme this time around is 'Home sweet home' , where we ask you get inspired by a home decor picture.
 
                           Here's the picture -

 and here's my take on it - 


    I heat embossed the deer stamp using Tim Holtz Distress embossing powder, added a strip of burlap and simply mounted the image and backing paper with some gold card.  Three adhesive gems added a small touch of bling to a rustic style seasonal  card!
     Short and sweet for the first post in a while but I'm hoping to simplify my blog posts as much as possible so they don't become a burden.

Entering this into the challenges at City Crafter , Creative Card Crew , Through the Craft Room Door and Crafting by Designs.

      Thanks for stopping by!
