Christmas Deer with a Jingle Bell

I played along with a new-to-me challenge I recently discovered over at the Art Impressions Stamp blog. The challenge is #70 and it's to use a metal accent on your card.
I don't own any Art Impression stamps yet, so I'm using a SU! Christmas Deer image which was embossed with winter wonderland ep on black card stock.  The antlers were dotted with Viva pearl pen accents. I added a tiny metal jingle bell with silver cording around the deer's neck. The image and frame were done with SB square dies in black & white with a kraft card base, and the sentiment is from SU! Heard from the Heart set.
I'm also entering this card in the OWH Stars & Stamps mid-week throwdown which is Christmas/winter in July.
Thanks so much for stopping by today - I wish you all a very happy Wednesday!

Beautiful! Love the pearl accents on the antlers. You know, when I see your beautiful cards, I get scared because I have only done one or two. You'll be able to sail through Christmas with all this behind you. But, I know you're having a blast getting them made. They're my favorite to make.

Carol, Another stunner from you. I love that image and the pearl pen accents really to add so much to that deer. The image looks so nice being framed like that. I wish I had some Christmas items with me, but I don't, so I'll have to wait till next week, but you've got me thinking about holiday cards now.
Talk to you soon.
Hugs - Donna

This is so pretty, Carol! I love the embossing and the color scheme - the brown and black together are very masculine.
