Foxy Birthday

It's the beginning of the week and remarkably, I managed to carve out a bit of time this Monday morning to create a card for a challenge that I really enjoy - Double Trouble. They always have interesting components to make you think about how to combine everything into one challenge and get it all onto the same project. 

This particular challenge is about woodland creatures and wood pieces...

Double Trouble Part 1 is about creating a project with something that looks like or is made from wood - DONE.

Double Trouble Part 2 is to include a woodland creature - DONE

Double Trouble Part 3 is to link up your project with Cupcake Inspirations as their challenge is also about using a woodland creature - DONE 

So, here is my card for these two challenges...

I used an old stamp called Spring Critters for the fox and since I need a LOT of birthday cards in the next while, I gave the fox a birthday greeting. I went with a pink theme and splattered the background paper with ink. I placed random flowers and leaves around the sentiment and raised the entire sentiment piece with foam tape. For emphasis, I inked the edges of most of the papers. A few yellow sequins were added to the centres of the flowers. I used a pattern from Make it From Your Heart - Vol. 4 to create my card.
