Assembly & Trix:

*  Lately we' have a red fox around our yard, healthy & young looking.  We think it may be hunting a groundhog or chipmunks.  It nimbly pounces, like a cat, into our neighbours flower bed.  So the fox on my card is watercoloured with Cajun Craze, it's as close to the colour as I could find.  Stamp the image with StazOn® Ink #101406 first, then watercolour with Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzaz & Petal Pink.    

*  The fun Petal Pink and Gold polka Dot paper is from the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper, #158808.  Maybe pink DSP is not a first thought for using with a fox  :)   but I'm challenging myself to mix and match patterns, images and colours.  Adhere the 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 dsp to the Petal Pink 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.

*  Die cut a 2 3/4 x 4 1/4 piece of Basic White & Cajun Craze cardstock with the edge image from the Blossoming Happiness Dies, #158823.  ***Trix thread together with Linen Thread, #104199 using a blanket stitch.  I used a darning needle simply to be quick, but you could wind the thread through, the holes from the die are big enough.

*  Also adhere the cardstock layers with glue, the thread is just decorative.   Adhere to a 4 3/8 x 2 7/8 piece of Petal Pink cardstock, then adhere to the card base with dimensionals.

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Campology Stamp Set, #152553, cut out and adhere to the card base with glue, embellish with Festive Pearls, #159963
