Foxy Birthday Card

I recently became a Fun Stamper's Journey (FSJ) coach and have been having fun playing with my new stamps and cutting dies.  I love that the FSJ inks match their cardstock.  You can see the results here with Happy stamped on Cranberry Bliss cardstock and Birthday stamped with Cranberry Bliss ink.  The same is also true for the Palm Fronds behind the fox, which are stamped with Kiwi Slice ink on Sweet Pear cardstock and the Palm Fronds stamped with Black Licorice on Kiwi Slice cardstock. It all co-ordinates and I didn't have to waste a bunch of time trying to find the right combination.
Here's what I used to make this card as well as step by step instructions.  You can order these supplies from my Fun Stamper's Journey site at www.funstampersjourney.com/judyheadrick
