Foxy Welcome Baby

Good morning! One of the trends I have loved lately is foxes - and I was a little slow to get it, but I had to get my hands on this adorable Papertrey Ink fox. I finally had a chance to use it recently to make a card for a friend who was having a little boy - here is what I came up with.

LOVE this beautiful inspiration piece for this weeks Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge:

I stamped the fox, fussy cut it out, and paper pieced the face and tail parts, then attached with foam adhesive to the notebook paper that I cut out with another PTI die. Added my sentiment from a separate PTI stamp set, some enamel dots, a bit of jute twine tied with an October Afternoon button, and some pattern paper from Studio Calico. Finished off with a couple of rounded corners, and a kraft cardbase.

Thanks for dropping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
