Terrific card, Michele, even without the skis. My eye was drawn to the ear of the deer. That is one cool stud! I really like the colors and the texture of the woodgrain going in both directions. The deer head and the gorgeous red hello. You are just so clever and you make some really amazing cards! :) Hugs!

I'm smiling, Michele ... soon as I saw this challenge I thought of you and wondered if you'd be playing along. Well, of course you did ... and your card is gorgeous! Cool, stylish, and so deliciously touchable ... that red sentiment is perfect against the woodgrain ... and that sweet heart 'earing' is fabulous ... and so fun! Hugs, Anita :)
