Speedy Fox & Challenge 225 - 9 Squares Background


Hi and welcome to a new challenge at MFP's Speedy Fox & Friends!  This week our challenge is to use 9 squares on our background.  I used one of the dies out of the large SB square dies.  You could make any sort of background - as long as you use 9 squares in some fashion.  Remember, there is a prize of a stamp set to the weekly winner.

Card Recipe:
