Sir Stampalot February Challenge - DT card

Good morning.

It's time for another Sir Stampalot challenge and this month we have the theme:-

"All Creatures Great and Small"


I've used two Penny Black stamps for my card, "Before the Snow" (3993K) and "Mystical" (4001K).  I stamped the tree and the deer onto the card and ran it through a Cuttlebug folder "Swiss Dots". I then stamped another image of the deer which I coloured with Copics and cut out, bar the tricky antlers, before sticking it to the card.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink "Mega Mixed Messages".  Other tools I have used are a Martha Stewart corner punch, an Stampin Up! oval punch and a Scor-pal. 

As always, we have a fantastic prize for the winner donated from our wonderful sponsors, Sir Stampalot.

I do hope you join us this month.
