Father's Day Fox

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit on this Sunday in June.
We are celebrating Father's Day today but without our sons or grandkids. My youngest son lives in California and the oldest one and his family left for the beach yesterday. It's their year to go with my daughter-in-law's family. So we are taking care of their dog.
Today I will make my hubby a special dinner and just let him relax. The US Open (golf) is on TV so he will probably watch that. He is a great Dad and Granddad so a day to honor that is wonderful.
I showed his card yesterday. See that here. And, today I am showing the card that  I sent to my son in California. So let's get started with some details on how I created this card.
crushed curry, pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise
This is my card for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge #639. Maura was our hostess and she has chosen tempting turquoise, crushed curry and pumpkin pie for her color trio. Optional this week is to add the treats of summer to your card.

I needed a Father's Day card so I didn't use the option on this card.  My sweet granddaughter will love the fox.

I used a kaleidoscope stencil + sponge dauber for my background and the challenge colors. I thought it made a nice masculine backdrop for my little fox.

The fox and log are dies from CottageCutz - the Forest Peekers Fox and the Log for Peekers. I cut the fox in pumpkin pie cardstock and then sponged with the same ink ink. I wanted to deepen his color a bit to make him look like a red fox.

The sentiment is from the "Man of the Hour" set from Waltzingmouse. Cut it with a flag die. Well that's my card for today. I hope you are enjoying your Sunday whatever plans you may have. Until next time........God bless.
