The Squirrel and the Fox DT #67 All Creatures Great and Small

Good morning! Over at The Squirrel and the Fox we have a great new challenge - All Creatures, Great and Small! We'd like to see cards with animals - or fish or insects or even dinosaurs!

Our lovely sponsor is Oak Pond Creations and a very lucky winner can pick 3 of their fabulous digis! Not too shabby, eh?!

Isn't this the most wonderful fox family? A very lovely friend of mine is moving home to Scotland next week, and this is the card I made her. She has 3 bright, fun daughters, so as soon as I saw this image I knew it was just right for her!

I used the Spellbinders Filigree Delight die to emboss a card base made with Centura Pearl. I added some pearls in the corners and the middle of the sides. I used all the russet coloured Promarkers to colour the image, plus some green for the grass they are sitting on.

The sparkly organza ribbon and the diamante buckle are from stash. The sentiment is by LotV - it's actually straight on the card itself but unfortunately my photo is a wee bit wonky!

Happily, the card went down very well with the recipient! I will miss her so much - but there is always Facebook to keep in touch. I love living in the 21st Century!

Do go and see my teamies' fab makes, then join in the challenge with your own animal cards!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

What a pretty card for your friend, and I love the Filigree delight on that pearl background. It's hard to say goodbye, but isn't it lovely that you can still chat with each other via FB? I'm sure she will miss all her friends, but be so happy to 'be home again'. TFS & Hugs

The fox family are truly fabulous but that embossed background is running a close second. Fabulous card!
