The Card Concept challenge 63 Love & Joy (the final Challenge before Christmas Break-Dec 14-January 4)

Well, this is the last challenge for The Card Concept before the Christmas Break which will go from Dec 14 to January 4.  The theme for this challenge is  Love & Joy using a delightful inspiration image........a decorated fireplace.

For my card I went a little shabby again.
The bricks are made with a stencil coloured with about four Distress Ink colours.
The Joy letters are from a sheet of stickers which I have adhered to squares of a very textured paper. I inked around them with a distress marker then used a little water on a paintbrush to blend.
The Pine needles are a cut file (Silhouette) I made from a photo of a pine branch.
The Fishtail frame is from MFT. I have smeared the beige board with white acrylic paint.
The deer is one of a set of three from Impression Obsession.
The pine cones are a hand punch.
The '25' is a sticker.

Now it's your turn to be inspired. Happy creating!

What a beautiful design - you've captured all the elements of that amazing photo - yet it's calm and peaceful. I love that white deer silhouette at the edge of the scene.
