I Pine for You, Polka Dots

So we are getting some crazy storms in Ohio. I was at Archivers tonight taking a class when it started raining and hailing really hard. The front of the store started flooding!!These tornadoes and severe thunderstorms are hitting everywhere :( I hope you all are staying safe!! I know how scary the weather has been here and it's not even a quarter of what the plain states are seeing.

On a happier note this week I'm playing along with Lawnscaping Polka Dot Frenzy challenge

*All the stamps used are from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Forest set.
I started by cutting a card base out of whit card stock 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. I cut the pink polka dot paper (Making Memories, Just Chillin) to the same size.
I stamped the tree 4 times then colored them with peeled paint and shabby shutters. I used walnut stain for the trunk. I cut them out and layered them with foam tape. To add some dimension I glued the top part flat and put the foam under the very bottom edges.
I stamped the fox on white then colored her in with brushed corduroy and walnut stain. I avoided getting too much color on the tip of the tale then to make it whiter I colored with a gel pen (Sakura).
I cut a piece of kraft to 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and a white piece just an 1/8in smaller.
I stamped the sentiment in archival jet black (Ranger) and added some pink gem stones.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you all are safe in this scary weather !!!
