JUGS #229-Inspiration Photo

Hello there!! Happy to have a Saturday in which the temperature is not below zero! And hoping your weekend has started well!  Lisa has a great inspiration photo for us this week.  Please check it out on our BLOG- JUST US GIRLS.  

I bought the Stampin' Up! set Life in the Forest just to have this fox.  He's adorable.  Then I had this card in my mind all week and was finally able to finish it this morning.  When I got everything pasted together it looked like a quilt block to me so I embossed it with my SU! folder.  Love this look on cards!
I hope you can see that I got my inspiration from the wooden spools (SU wooden boards bg), the fox and the tree in Lisa's photo.  My clouds are from PTI and the grass is a Martha Stewart punch.  The tree is a die from Memory Box and is cut from white and colored with copics. And, can you see, I got my sewing machine out and stitched the edge! So much inspiration from the photo!
I think I'll add inside something like this;  "The fox says Happy Birthday" because this card makes me think of that catchy little song " What does the fox say?"  Can't get it out of my head!!
Thanks for visiting and please visit our blog for tons of inspiration!  It's right HERE!

Have a great weekend! Cheryl

Love this! I think that is my favorite embossing folder!!! I just made a card that looks like quilt squares, and I used that folder!
