A Foxy Birthday

My stamping friend Anne's husband has a birthday on Valentine's Day -  so I like to send him a card so his birthday doesn't get lost amongst all the heart cards!!  I recently got a fun stamp set from PTI along with dies called Love You to Pieces - Fox.  You can actually make a 3 D fox with it (see bottom of post) - but today, I used the little fox stamp and die to make my masculine birthday card.
Here's a close up of the cute fox - with his black bow tie and little heart all popped up on foam dots.
My sketch was inspired by CAS(e) this Sketch
and my colors and patterns were inspired by Curtain Call
and it's a b'day card - so I'm also linking to Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
And in case you are interested -   here's how the 3D fox looks using the Love You to Pieces - Fox Stamps and dies.  SO cute!   I made several for Valentine's so mounted him/her to a die cut heart.
We had another 5" of snow today - and are supposed to get up to 7" more by Tuesday - at least it's the light fluffy stuff - so it doesn't give us a heart attack to shovel it - the piles keep getting higher and higher!  We can no longer see our 4 foot fence out front!

Stamps:  Fox, Heart and bow tie from Love You to Pieces: Fox - PTI, Happy Birthday from Party Animal - Avery Elle.
Paper:  White, True Black - PTI, DP Christmas Home - Teresa Collins, Sn@p - Simple Stories
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Pure Poppy - PTI
Accessories:  Love You to Pieces die set - PTI, foam tape.
