Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge

The Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge this week is to make a card using buttons. My card features the Pansies stamp from Spring Flowers Stamp Set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. For my inspiration card, I stamped the image  on white CS and colored with Copics. I cut out the image and placed on a pattern paper cut with a frame die. I adhered this to an embossed  solid mat and then on to the card base of  brown. I finished with a sentiment stamped on a strip with a punched edge. I added the blue buttons layered with burlap  to the center of the pansies. Colors that I used for my card were pulled from the shiny pattern paper.

Please join in the challenge this week for a chance to win a MFP stamp Set. You have until 3PM on Friday June 8, 2012 to post your card. Remember, if you use MFP, a Heinrich Company stamps your name will be entered into the drawing twice.
