Campfire Fox

I created this card for Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge.  You were suppose to use either the "Campin Critters" cartridge or the "Nifty Fifties" cartridge, but if you don't have those, as I currently don't, they said you can use a similar cartridge.  So I decided to use the "Create a Critter" cartridge.
ALL paper for this card is from The Paper Company's value packs.
I started with a piece of brown 5 1/2x 8 1/2" cardstock and I folded it in half for the base of my card.  Then I cut a piece of blue card stock at 5 1/4"x 4" for my first layer on my card.  I cut a piece of green cardstock at 5 1/4"x 2" and attached it to the lower 2" of the blue cardstock using my ATG gun.  I took a piece of grosgrain ribbon and laid it across where the two colors met and secured it on the back using regular Scotch tape.  Then I secured the whole thing to the base of the card using my ATG gun.
I cut the fox at 3" from the "Create a Critter" cartridge and I cut the campfire at 2" from the same cartridge.  The little fire-pit under the campfire I created using 2 scalloped ovals from the "Storybook" cartridge.  I cut them both at 1 3/4" using the real dial size button on my Cricut Expression.  I took the darker one and, using a pair of scissors, I cut out the center and then used a Zig 2-way glue pen to secure it to the lighter color.  I attached the fox to the card using 3D-Dots and the campfire using my ATG gun.
I used stickles, Mermaid, Star Dust and Waterfall, to create stars in the night sky.  And finally I used a My Pink Stamper stamp from her "Christmas Wishes" set with a Stampin' Up! Classic, Chocolate Chip, stamp pad for my sentiment.
