The latest challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Jackie, who has chosen the theme 'Cute and Furry'.

Jackie would like to see the main focal point of your creation be something that is cute and furry. It can be a digi stamp, stamp, photographic image, but must have fur and be cute.

From my card I have used an adorable image by Oak Pond Creations.

I have coloured this adorable Fox using a mix of Promarkers and Copics, using flicks to try to get a fur effect. 

I did the sky and grass with Adirindack Inks, I then die cut a frame and attached the negative cut over the image.

I stamped around the edge with some Leaves using Lavinia stamps vine leaves stamp, to try to give the illusion that he is sitting in the undergrowth.

I added some tiny punched butterflies and a couple of flowers made with a marriane die.

I hope you will pop along and join our Cute and Furry challenge as we have some fab sponsors.
