52 Cards Wk15 & Scrapology April card challenge: foxy birthday card

For wk15 on the 52 Card Challenge the prompt was "all creatures great or small", to make a card with our furry friends. Common sense would say to make an Easter card as the prompt was before Easter and use bunnies or chicks. But I lack common sense sometimes and I'm still catching UK so Easter has been and gone! I searched through my stash for anything animal related but other than butterfly punches and my bird punch from Stampin Up, I was not feeling inspired.

Then after catching up on my blog reading I came across the Scrapology April card challenge to use freebies. I remembered I had saved a cute fox postcard we received from a supplier at work from the bin so decided to kill two birds with one stone so to speak. The rabbit tag is also a freebie from a Joules bath set I received for Christmas and I intend to make a card with this too at some point. 
The easy option would be to use the postcard as a whole as a backing appear but that would be no fun. Instead I pulled out my Stampin Up postage stamp punch and punched some foxes out. 
I added a scrap of old October Afternoon paper, some Washi tape and some Pebbles letter stickers.
