Speedy Fox & Friends challenge~~Add a Fence


Today's Speedy Fox and Friends challenge is to add a fence to your card.  I didn't have a fence punch (other than Halloween) so I turned to my Cricut to see what I had there.  I didn't have a "traditional" fence, but I found this cut on the Paper Trimmings Cartridge and thought it looked like a fancy fence, so I went with it. 

I'm still working on my shading, so I really concentrated on my coloring again this week.  You can't really tell that Santa's suit is shaded in the photo, but you can a little bit IRL.  I probably should have used a little darker red for my shadow.  Oh well, next time.........

Stamps:  Holly Jolly Greetings
Paper:  Snow Storm Smooth, Speedy Cat Black Linen by MFP, Christmas DSP
Ink:  Palette Charcoal, Garden Green
Misc:  Cricut Paper Trimmings Cartridge

Thanks for stopping by again today.  I hope you like my little Santa card.  Please play along with us this week at Speedy Fox & Friends challenge.

Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie

Very cute. Using that punch was a great idea. It looks like the top of a wrought iron fence. Great thinking!
