Morning Folks!

Yay Sunday, time for a lazy lie in, tea in bed and the start of a new challenge at Here come the Boys!!

This time our challenge is


Now, I have to say this had me a little stumped at first because it's not a colour combo I had associated with Christmas, but then I guess that's why it is a challenge!!

Here's what I came up with after some head scratching and rummaging through my stash
Sorry about the dark picture, in real life the deer is a chocolate brown colour and the background embossing is quite creamy but my camera had other ideas.....

The very handsome deer with the gorgeous antlers is by Stampin Up which I bought a few months ago... I was trying so hard not to buy more Xmas stuff but I just couldn't resist!!
The die cut border is by Memory box and the embossing folder is by cuttlebug.

Here's the border with some added gems and some very old ribbon from my collection!!

Please head over to the main HCTB challenge blog to get some inspiration from the rest of the design team and all the challenge details!
Don't forget our challenge is all about making cards for men - young and old - so girly cards are not allowed!!!
