Bugaboo Stamps 11th Birthday Bash - Day 1

Hello, everyone!  I'm back with another card to help Bugaboo Stamps celebrate their 11th birthday.  As mentioned in the previous blog post, Bugaboo is holding a birthday bash with a theme of forest friends.  There is just one day left for this challenge, so I am running late for this party!  

My card features Bugaboo Stamps Fall Autumn Fox.  I coloured the image with markers and die-cut with a rectangle and then layered it on a scrap of pumpkin-coloured cardstock. 

My card design was inspired by Stella Says Sketch 901 at Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Challenge Blog:

The kraft cardstock was embossed with Taylored Expressions Woodgrain and then I layered scraps of  patterned papers (A Fox's Tale) according to the sketch.  I die-cut a border (Simon Says Stamp Pine Needle Border) from a green scrap and adhered behind the patterned paper.  After adhering the image, I added a die-cut wonky stitched oval (MFT), again from a green scrap, and stamped with a birthday sentiment (Your Next Stamp Autumn Animals).  The pumpkin-coloured banner behind the image was another scrap.  

I would also like to join the following 7 challenges, for a total of 8:

Wow!! Such amazing and interesting design, Kitty! Your choice of papers, embossing and diecuts are really striking!The bugaboo fox is so cute and you have coloured it so well, love the white highlights!! That pumpkin-coloured banner is seems only a detail, but I can see that it is an important touch to keep all together so well! You are very talented and this card is another demonstration ;)

You are making a bit of a late run but at least you will get some cards entered. This one is beautiful - the papers, dies and image match really well. Good luck on getting some more completed before it closes.
