Gerda Steiner Monthly Challenge

Today I have made a card that I am going to enter into Gerda Steiner's Monthly Challenge.  I have only recently discovered her brilliant stamps and she also sells digi stamps too.

The stamp for this month's challenge is a digi one and is called Cute Fox.

I coloured the fox with Copics and fussy cut him (or her) out.  I originally coloured 3 of these, one being larger as I was going to group them but I decided to go with just the one and will use the others on another project.
 
I stamped up a piece of card with a woodgrain stamp and then cut out the centre using Mama Elephant Columbus Circle die.  I added a WPlus9 Spring Wreath cut out using green and a coral colour card. 
 
The outer circle is by MFT Stitched Scallop Circle Frame.

I then stamped the sentiment which is by Waltzing Mouse 'Compact Sentiments 2' using my Misti and some chocolate dye ink.  I was then going to leave the stamp in place and ink it up with Versamark ink so that I could heat emboss using clear embossing powder.  Well I must have had my noodle head on (as usual) because I took the stamp off my misti before I'd used the Versamark..... hence the slightly offset look to the sentiment!!!  Ooops!!

Mind you, I do sometimes offset text so I could have pretended I did it on purpose?!!!!!
