Made in Minutes

It's Made in Minutes over on the My Creative Time Blog.  Our challenge is to design something that is "made in minutes" ~ with the products offered by My Creative Time, it's super fun and easy to do!! This card took me about 20 minutes to complete.  Using the rectangular shaped dies to layer on the front of the card really makes it easy to design in no time!!

 It's a little hard to see on picture but I embossed the "Christmas" to match with the gold shimmer paper I used to die cut the deer.
