Birthday Sundaes Challenge #8

I'm finally starting to get caught up after being on vacation. I still have several blogs to go visit from the Disney Pixar Blog hop and slowly but surely I will visit you all.

Today I'm participating in the Birthday Sundaes Challenge . The challenge is to make a birthday card using 3 different embellishments and 2 patterned papers. How fun is that! I need to make a birthday card for my nephew Parker so this happened to be the perfect challenge for me. Here's what I came up with.

How to:
Camping Critters Cart - Cut deer at 4"
The darker color paper on the deer came from Bazzill Basics Paper in French Silk. For the rest of the deer I used my scraps.

The patterned paper is from DCWV The guy stack and Recollections Autumn 8 x 8 paper pack.

My Pink Stamper More Punny-licious set - Best Fishes
Stampendous Birthday Brackets set - Happy Birthday

The google eyes and waves are from my stash. I used waterfall stickles for the fish.

Glue - pop dots, tombo liquid glue, Zig glue pen and glue runner
Ink - Tim Holtz disstressing ink on tree and SU soft suede for sentiments and boarder around card.
Tim Holtz disstressing tool used on tree.
Marvy Markers used on deer, fish and grass
Martha Stewart boarder punch used for grass

I'm really pleased with how this turned out and can't wait to send it to Paker. Hope you are all enjoying your day.
