Stag in a pub?

DCM Santa's little extra helper no. 5 was this:

This week we'd love to see you making cards on the theme ofBaubles, Bells & Bows See how much of a dent you can make in the "I need to make X number of Christmas cards" list with this one.

I have no bells or baubles and really I do bows all the time so I was struggling a bit until I came across my new stamps. They are a bit small but there are baubles on there, really! I played around with this one last night for ages not really happy with where it was going. I think that although I like the paper, the stripey paper reminds me of an old fashioned pub wallpaper so I kept thinking that this looks like a framed picture of a stag on a pub wall!
Supplies: White and brown cardstock, DCWV The christmas stack 6x6, Dovecraft brads, Basic Grey clear stamps 'Winterland', Provocraft rub-ons 'Christmastime Sentiments', Maya Road ribbon, Organza ribbon from Ribbon Oasis. Versacolor inkpads in Pinecone and brown. Old eyeshadows for 'chalking'.

Beautiful card Deb!

My daughter says, "Hi Deb, sure you can use my poem! It's an honor that someone wants to use my poem!"

Just so you know Deb, there are other versions and shorter versions of the poem available all over the Internet. My original idea for these came from this site:
