Sweater Fox Lost his Mittens

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing another winter-themed card featuring a sweater animal! This fox has lost his mittens!  As usual, I was inspired by a number of challenges.
 

Clear stamps: Newton's Nook Sweater Weather 
Die:  Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders
Stencil:  Newton's Nook Evergreen

I stamped, coloured, and fussy-cut the sweater fox and mittens so I could pop them up on foam tape. I created the background using an evergreen stencil with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide and then adhered the die-cut snowy landscape, fox, and mittens.  I inked around the edges of the sky with the same Distress Oxide and then stamped the sentiment and snowflakes in black.  As a finishing touch, I added some Star Dust Stickles to the fox's hat pompom.

I was inspired by the following challenges:

Totally adorable, Kitty! I love your scene. We ready about lost mittens all the time with the twins. They seem to loose theirs too. Great design! Hope all is well! Stay safe.

He does look warm and cosy even without his mittens on. Lovely colours for his sweater. Hugs Mrs A.

Well that is indeed a perfect winter card design. That fox is all ready for the cold and blizzard season. In fact, we are having a blizzard today and he would be nice and warm for a little while at least. LOL This is a darling card design.
