Happy Birthday Mr. Foxy

Hello, everyone!  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome five lovely new followers - Jacqueline Edwards, Theresa Krout, Gracielle ChNancy, and Simply Paper Card Design/Jacee - thank you for joining me!

Today I've made a birthday card featuring a freebie image from the Polkadoodles Facebook group called Mr. Foxy.  They're having a little challenge over there and I couldn't resist colouring this adorable image with my Prismacolor pencils and joining in the fun!

Here are the supplies used:
  • Designer paper:  MME Reunion, Creative Memories
  • Dies:  Cheery Lynn Dancing Doily Lace Border and Ivy Strip, Impression Obsession Fir Trees, Moon from Memory Box Night Sky Border
  • Punches:  Corner (Stampin' Up), Flowers (EK Success, Michaels)
  • Ribbon:  EK Success
  • Accents:  Flowers, gems, charm - all from my stash
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (The Old Island Stamp Company)

Here's a close-up of the flowers, leaves, and charm.

I would like to support the following challenges:
