Autumn birthday card

Hiya! I'm back to share a card I made last night and I'm so happy with it - pretty rare these days ;-) I really wanted to make an autumn theme card but am on a serious stash spending freeze so I got creative. I stamped this plaid background using this weeks Paper Players colour scheme and it was really fun! Plus it gave me a chance to bust out my gorgeous new Blackberry Bliss card & ink! I stamped the fox in Cajun Craze ink, which I also used to water colour the image. Then I stamped and cut apart the branch image to add as the two strips behind the image on this weeks Freshly Made sketch. This also works for the current Lawn Fawn challenge of Critters. Thanks for stopping by :-)






Supplies;
Inks - Stampin' Up 'Cajun Craze', 'Always Artichoke', 'Blackberry Bliss' & 'Baked Brown Sugar'
Stamps - Lawn Fawn 'Into the Woods'' Mama Elephant 'Basic borders' & Waltzing Mouse 'Off Beat backgrounds'
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink 'Framed Out #6'
Dies - Nestabilities 'Squares'
