Happy Birthday Card - I CASED MYSELF!!!

My brother's birthday is coming up SOON and I actually have to get this in the mail TODAY!  So I decided to cut a few corners and CASE myself.  In Arkansas where I am from and where most my family still lives there hasn't hardly been any rain lately and deer season is rumored to possibly be canceled due to the dryness.  The HORROR!!  I think my dad and brother will need therapy if that happens!  Anyway, I figured for his birthday I would give him a big buck just in case he doesn't get to hunt for one.  I really doubt they will cancel it but still it is something I can rib him about. 

I have been asked what I put inside my cards.  I usually (almost always) leave them blank as far as sentiments or stamping.  I use that space to write a letter!  A lost art! 

Here is a link to my original card and a video tutorial I did with it:  Thank You Card - Animal Kingdom Cartridge - Video #9

Here's my new card:

Big Buck was cut out at 3 1/2" from Animal Kingdom (an oldie but goodie!)


Recipe:
Card Base: SU Handsome Hunter (very fitting color!) 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front: River Rock 4 X 5 1/4
Other Cardstock / Paper:  DCVW the Fall Stack Paper Pack cut at 5 1/4" X 2 1/2"
Handsome Hunter strip cut at 5 1/4" X 1"
SU Creamy Caramel & Ivory ( not sure what brand ) used for the deer
Ink: SU Handsome Hunter, Chocolate Chip, Craft White for sponging the deer
Stamps: PTI (Papertrey Ink) Say It With Style
Accessories: SU Pastels (chalks), Chocolate Chip marker, Cuttlebug & Floral Screen Embossing folder, Cricut Expression & Animal Kingdom Cartridge

Be sure and check out my giveaway and leave a comment to get into the drawing if you haven't already!
