Wintery Thinking of you

A neighbor of ours lost his mother this last week, so I wanted to make a sympathy card.  There are a few  wintery and blue and white challenges out there so I put a winter spin on it and really liked how it turned out.  Here it is:



 I used a new Cricut Lite cartridge titled "Wildlife" and LOVE IT.  It has just wildlife animals and a few words.  It is one they sell at Walmart.  I had been eyeing it for a while now and finally broke down and bought it.  I used some silver glitter paper behind the deer and dotted glitter glue on the white background.  Triad Leaves is the Sizzix folder for the embossing and Baker's twine from the Twinery,  in Denim.  The font is called Verdana.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Hope you are having a GREAT WEEK! Thanks to those who have been entering my Valentine's challenge! See you Soon!
