Let's Go Chill out Love!

Hi Ya! 

{Eek, Jill at Everyday is an Occasion featured this card Sunday February 10, 2013. You can click here to read her post. Thank you so much Jill}

I really really needed a stress break, so I escaped to my craft room which is a big mess from working on several projects, but I just needed to craft to craft. So I just moved a pile to another pile and this is what I came up with.  I needed fun, cute and a little love and then a *sigh*!

I used the fox from Chilly Chums and paper pieced him with Lunch Bag Kraft from The Kraft Journal  and his little face, tail, and ears are actually teeny tiny white and pink polka dot patterned paper.  The sentiment was a combination from Chilly Chums and Falling for You.  I die-cut a pennant banner from the same patterned paper I used on the fox and added some darling punched hearts to the centers.  Using some of oldest bling I own in my stash, I added it between the pennants. It's so tiny, I avoid using it. Hence why I have had it like Fur-ever! I am pretty sure it's as old as when they invented bling for Scrapbooking and survived a move from Hawaii! 
The patterned papers are a mixture of Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker and My Mind's Eye. I took a length of Hemp Twine and wrapped it around the card base and tied off in a bow adding a button. 

I found inspiration at the following places:
Drunken Stampers Challenge - Furry Creatures

DS113
Shopping our Stash - Using our oldest Bling
Sunday {Fun}day - Link Party
Thanks to Lyndal, I am linking this to Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger.
Hope you enjoy my little card today! Thanks for peeking in on me!
