Noble Deer in the Night

Good morning stampers of the Internet world,
Today's creation was inspired by a photo that my DH (Dedicated Husband) took a few years ago on our family ranch in Northern New Mexico. I have always loved this photo, I've loved it so much that I had it enlarged and framed then gave it to my DH for a present. So, I was trying to figure out how I could recreate it using stamps. Well, Stampin' Up has the perfect stamp set called Lovely As A Tree. It gives the illusion of the trees that I was looking for. I also wanted to enhance it by adding an Elk to the picture because our ranch is known for its Elk. But unfortunately, I could only find a deer stamp, Noble Deer (retired). After I created this card I gave it to my Nephew for his 16th Birthday. He loved it.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I had making it!
