The Fox in the Woods

Yikes - it's been almost a week since I last posted.  I've been so tired when I've gotten home from work each night that I just made supper, watched a little TV and dropped into bed (I think because it's so dark with the time change?!) -  but  today I was inspired by several challenges to get back into my craft room and make this card.
I got out my recently purchased PTI stamp and die set Warmest Wishes.   I laid the die cut trees on top of my inked Cabin Plaid Background stamp from WMS and rubbed over them with my fingers.  I colored the foxes tail with a white gel pen.
I used the Freshly Made Sketch for my card design
I'm also linking this to the these challenges:
The Card Concept Challenge - my design is Clean and Layered
being inspired by the plaid chair as well as the green and cranberry colors.
 Curtain Call - Foxy 
One more day until the weekend!   Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps:  Warmest Wishes - PTI, Cabin Plaid Backgrounder - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  White, Terrecotta Tile, DP Textstyle Holiday Cheer - PTI
Ink:  Ocean Tides, Scarlet Jewel, True Black - PTI
Accessories:  Warmest Wishes Die Set - PTI, foam dots, white gel pen.

I feel the same way this time of year Julia. The sun goes down so early and I find the days are getting so dark and dingy, hard to feel motivated under those conditions. Your card is wonderful, love the pop of red against the soft background. hugs :)
