For "Deer" 'Ole Dad

It will be Father's Day in just a few days.  I made half a dozen cards with this Doodle Pantry image and most of them with the same sketch I found at OWH.    You know me - I like simple.

 Camo ribbon, a few brads (one to hide a mistake) and wood grain patterned paper for the oval frame.
 Wood grain patterned paper by Doodle Pantry, Creamy Caramel c/s by Stampin Up.
 Misc. wood grain patterned paper scraps, Dark Chocolate c/s by GKD.
This last one was fun to do.  I have seen several cards with a deer or other wild animal printed or stamped onto news print.  I printed this image onto a piece of dictionary paper that I ordered from Kraft Journal.  The card base is Lipstick Red by GKD, then a layer of Kraft c/s under the plaid and as layers for the dictionary paper and sentiment.
