Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge

Are you thinking about Christmas cards? Guess this is a good time to start making some in this sweltering heat.... maybe that'd make us think cool thoughts? At Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge this week we are asking you to think of Christmas in July and enter your Christmas cards to our blog challenge. And stay cool if you are in a hot zone.

My card uses Mark's Finest Papers "Greetings of the Season" stamp set. I stamped the image and colored with Copics. I edged my layers with a gold marker, a simple way to add the look of more layers and a touch of gold. Added a simple twig that was saved from some old greenery and a scrap of ribbon.
 Please join us in the challenge this week for a chance to win a MFP stamp Set. You have until 3PM on Friday July 27 to post your card. Remember, if you use MFP, a Heinrich Co. stamps your name will be entered into the drawing twice.
