Foxy Birthday

  Happy Friday!!!  It's time for a new challenge from the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge is: Any Animal or Insect

And our fabulous sponsor is:

Here is my card for your inspiration:

I have had this stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays for a couple years and had yet to pull it out and get it inky.  This challenge (specially since they are our sponsor!) was the perfect opportunity to pull it out and let it see the light of day.  There is also a racoon in the set, but I decided to use this cutie fox and created a masculine themed birthday card.  I had been wondering how I would use this log patterned paper, it fit the theme quite well.  I finished everything off with a couple star brads that I have had for very, very, long time.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the Cut It Up blog for the full details of the challenge and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.

What a perfect masculine birthday card Heather. You've hit the nail on the head with this one. Love the colours, papers, image and embellishments. I find it so hard to make masculine cards. Great card and thanks so much for sharing your work with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.

That fox is so cute, Heather! He looks like he could be holding a sign, or flowers, or any number of items ~ very versatile. I love your use of pp and the star brads ... way to use your schtuff, both old and new! And thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

According to Google even foxes bark, so you have, unintentionally perhaps, used the bark word in 2 different ways:) Great masculine design and the fox’ fur adds the perfect amount of color. Thanks for joining our challenge at Inkspirational.
