Coloring Cricut Die Cuts - Fall/Autumn Card Fox "Thanks"

I've created a cute Thank You Card with a Fall/Autumn look to it using Cricut Close To My Heart (CTMH) cartridge Artistry to make the Fox with inspiration from Mary of Cardz TV. You can click here to see Mary's card.

Used white cardstock like Mary and colored the white cardstock with Tim Holtz Distress Inks using sponge daubers. Added red cardstock heart. Added brown pearls for Fox eyes & nose.

Used MISTI to stamp the sentiment on the speech bubble.
