The Fawn ~Another Christmas Card

Good day everyone,
Hope you're all having a good weekend.   We've been glued to the box watching the olympics...starting with the fabulous opening ceremony.  007 was my favourite part along with the childrens choirs.....that brought tears to my eyes...I'm strange... I know!

I took a break and coloured a Simply Gorjuss rubber stamp called The Fawn, using taupe, close to cocoa, white and a little peach.  A different colour combination for Christmas for sure but I'm happy with the outcome.  The Santa Claus Express label is from LOTV.   I've used SU close-to-cocoa ribbons, along with a satin pleated ribbon and velvet peach ribbon from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  Rhinestone circle is a Prima, pearls from the $ store.  CB swiss dot folder used to emboss the mat.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
