Get Well Fox and Bonus Leaves

Hey peeps!  It's a busy day here in the Snapdragon house but I finally got upstairs to the computer to do this blog post!  And today I have a get-well card.

One of my cousins is in the hospital right now so I thought she'd like to get some cute mail.  How much do you love that woodgrain patterned paper?  And the fox?  And that awesome script paper that comes in every SU! color?  Yep, pretty fantastic.

And this card is a triple challenge bonus, starting with Cupcake Inspiration's Forest Friends challenge:

Do foxes live in the forest?  Since my fox comes from the stamp set Thankful Forest Friends, I'm going to go with a tentative yes.  I used the colors from Colour Me...!

I was a really good girl too, I used only the two challenge colors plus three neutrals:  Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Whisper White.

And finally I used this week's Retro Sketch:

And while I was feverishly stamping away this morning in my craft cave, I forgot I already had a card done that I could have posted today.  Oops.  And it needs to go in the mail like 10 days ago too because my friend's birthday was on the 8th.  Double oops.

That leaf stamp is from last month's Paper Pumpkin kit and after this card but before the fox card I squished my Cajun Craze ink pad so it's now not so extra juicy that it obliterates details on the stamps.  Look at the Cajun leaves on that card and then scroll back up to the fox.  So much mo bettah.

And for this card I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:

I love a sketch that showcases tiny image stamps, sometimes it's hard to figure out how to use those effectively.

Anyway, that's it for me today and I'll see you tomorrow, peeps!  Cheers!
