Inspired By #195

I'm trying to not take photos too literal when I make a card for a challenge.  It's sometimes a stretch for me but the photo at Inspired By made the stretch necessary since I didn't have a lot of choices for stamps/dies.  Here's the photo.

 Let's see if you can see how I was inspired.

I saw deer, snowflakes and the color green so they go together to make my card.  It started with a snowflake embossing folder (an older one so it's not 3D).  Using my Waffle Flower A2 dies, that panel was cut down and bordered with Pinefeather cardstock which was also used for the sentiment.  The reindeer is from Essentials by Ellen and was cut once from brown and twice from cardboard.  I decided to add a little snow to the letters for a little something extra using glue and Puff embossing powder. 

What do you think?  It was fun to focus on the elements of the photo and not the picutre in its entirety.  I'm training myself to do this more often.  I hope you'll drop by the challenge to see what others were Inspired By.
