Winter Deer

These wintry Impression Obsession dies -- Birch Trees and Deer Trio -- remind me so much of life in Estes Park in the Rocky Mountains, a stone's throw from where I live in Colorado. However, we don't have cardinals here. Instead, we have different types of jays, including the magnificent Stellar Jay. Perhaps in the next version of this card, I'll switch out the red cardinals for the blue jays.

The background features a Stampin' Up Christmas tree, stamped in a variety of green and grey inks. In theory, this is a relatively easy card, but cutting and assembling pieces was a bit of a bear!
