The “WOW” on today’s card comes from the fabulous Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Paper.   The touches of copper in the designs lend such an elegance.

I have always been captivated by the leaping deer, with its somewhat Art Deco lines.  He is stunning cut from copper foil to coordinate with the designer paper.
