A new to me challenge and another Christmas card

Hello crafty friends and welcome!
I want to share a card I made for a new to me challenge,

Basically, you create a card using one of the DT's cards, given, as
your inspiration. For this challenge, they are using this
card by DT member, Chriss:


So very pretty. The pink ombre, the gold forest with deer, the gold JOY sentiment.
All of that I was inspired by, but I put my own spin on it.
Here's my card:

here's the inside:

I began with a with a white card stock base, then sponged Picked Raspberry DI on half of it, going from light to dark for an ombre effect. I die cut the birch collage die and adhered over that. The deer is die cut in gold glitter paper and adhered. Then I just used the same ink to stamp the sentiment. Super easy, and I may have finished this card in under a half hour. (truly a Christmas miracle as I usually take at least two hours). And bonus, a second Christmas card is done!
 (only a gazillion more to go)

 That's it for me. Thanks for popping by. I wish all who are celebrating a
very joyous Easter!
