Thanks, Deer

Last night I had some time to play with Laura's sketch over at 2S4Y. I was finally able to ink up my new Forest Friends set and continue my current love affair with textured paper.

Something about this one is a little off for me. Am I being too hard on myself? Tell me what YOU think!

Stamps: Forest Friends (SU), Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral textured, PTI Ripe Avocado & white
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Nestabilities circles, ribbon (Hobby Lobby)
