Hello Foxy

Today I have a card that I made using the Crazy for You digital kit from The Lilypad.  I printed out the Fox and the hello, foxy sentiment, fussy cut the fox and added it to some earth tone card bases.

Happy 70th Birthday Dad

Today I have a special BIRTHDAY card to share with you.  This month is my Dad's 70th birthday.  I wanted to make a really special card.  I picked a few challenges to play along with and went about creating the card.  I would never have put these colors together.  That's why I love playing along with card challenges.  I think this color combo works nicely.  When I started pulling out my paper I wasn't sure this was going to work.  It did work.

The layout for this card comes from this week's Case This Sketch Sketch:


The color palette comes from this week's Colour Q:  (I used black as my neutral)


I'm including it in the Seize the Birthday and CAS*ology birthday challenges
