Noble Deer (SC185)

Today's Sketch Challenge was perfect for me!!! I love working with horizontal lines and rectangles with lots of layers. It also works great when you're making a masculine card. I was able to add ribbon (my favorite embellishment) without making the card look girly!

The base card is Very Vanilla which is almost completely covered with the Basic Black mat. I only left about 1/32" all around. On the black mat is more Very Vanilla which is stamped with "Itty Bitty Backgrounds" using Chocolate Chip ink. Next comes the Old Olive embossed panel which is also matted on black. The horizontal strip is Chocolate Chip matted on black with Old Olive Twill Ribbon from the Occasions Mini (expired) Catalog. There are two square chocolate brown brads placed with points down like a diamond. Finally, the main image was stamped with Stazon Timber Brown on Very Vanilla and matted on black. No coloring here; I just let the stamp do its thing, and I distressed and sponged the panel. You will see this one posted again because I will use this card for my "So Long, Farewell" Stamp Camp where we will be using all retiring stamp sets. I hate to say "Good-bye" to this one!
