Getting Foxy

Have you ever had a day where you are trying to be crafty but nothing is going right? That was my day today. I sat down to play along with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the color challenge at Sunday Stamps and nothing was coming together for me. I finally stepped away from my desk to shower and go make dinner and then when I came back this is what I ended up with. I can guarantee you that after my first few attempts this card is SO much better!

I used the Foxy Friend set from SugarPea Designs, I had colored him last week and he's been waiting for a home! The title at Sunday Stamps is "What Does the Fox Say".....I had given my friend Holly grief because I HATE that song. I told her I wasn't going to play along solely because of the title she used for this weeks challenge but I'm not that mean (although I am still using naughty words in my head for her making me think of that awful song). 

I deviated from the sketch just a tad by having the fox fill in as the circle shape and instead of a banner I popped the fox up over a piece of So Saffron. I think the sketch is still visible, at least I hope so!
