*SweetStamps #128

Good morning!
Happy Tuesday and thank for for stopping by today. 
We have a new challenge for you at SweetStamps for you to play along this week. 
 This weeks theme is: 
Christmas Tag
I was planning on working on Christmas tags, but I opt to make a tag for me card, since I found a sketch that I really wanted to work with.  It was from Freshly Made Sketches and besides that, I had the perfect embossing folder for the Classy Deer SweetCuts die. I cut the deer twice and layered it, but did not glue the antlers, because I wanted to make them dimensional. I added a bit of twine to the neck, just to give it a more festive look. 
Love the simple and clean look.  I think this may just be in the running for bulk Christmas cards this year.
