Winter Fox


I'm popping in before I head back work to share a card for a four challenges.  I started out with using the colour palette from The Colour Throwdown.  Because of the orange I decided I wanted to use a fox image so I pulled out this NBUS stamp from Lawn Fawn.  I think sending warm winter wishes constitutes thinking of someone so I'm entering this in the Lawnscaping Thinking of You challenge.  Just Add Ink has asked us to Just Add "W" this week and I have a triple "W" in my sentiment.  Finally there's an Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and the DT focused on Lawn Fawn products so I thought this card would be a perfect entry.  

I did more paper piecing with coloured cardstock.  I should really just get over my fear of colouring because it would probably save me a lot of time but I do like the end result once all the fussy cutting is done.  Must dash - lots of hungry cats to be fed!  Have a lovely evening!
