A little wild

It was Sage's birthday on Thursday.... I can't believe she's nine already!

I asked her what kind of a card she wanted for her birthday, and she said: "Whatever you want."
So helpful. ;)

Because she is having a jungle-themed party today, 
I decided to take one of her favourite stamps and make it a little wild.


I paper-pieced the fox using this fabulous Crate Paper patterned paper.
The sentiment is from It's a Jungle Out There.
I used the heart border die to die cut the cardstock and floral patterned paper for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink.

They sell this patterned paper pad. :)

Thanks for looking!

WOW, Leigh, you make the coolest, most unique cards! Paper piecing the fox to match the background would have awe-mazed me all by itself, but adding that sweet feminine border and making it work? Genius.
