Scraps Card #25 Sending You Warm Fuzzies

What a beautiful day.  22 degrees and loving this April weather week.  It is supposed to be nice all week with rain at the end of the week.  Oh well, you can't win them all.  I finally had a few moments tonight to make another scraps card. Only 6 more to go in this series.  And now time for another Series announcement.  My next personal challenge is a Masculine Series.  I have challenged myself to make 10 masculine adult cards and 10 boy cards. Wish me luck!
For this card, I used Create a Critter and also Everyday Pop Up Cards.  I have had this cartridge since before Christmas and FINALLY used it.  Sad on my part. I really liked how the lion from CAC and the Circus wagon from EPUC worked together. Also got a little inspiration from the Madagascar film.
The card base was cut from Orange cardstock from Recollections cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  The card mat was cut from a scrap of brown cardstock also by Recollections and measures 5 1/4" x 4".  The patterned paper scrap mat is from a baby mini I made years ago and measures 5" x 3 3/4".
Using the Everyday Pop Up Cards, I used the Circus cut found on p. 66 of the manual.  For this, I cut Circus from turquoise, Circus shift from Burnt Orange, layer 1 from a light brown, layer 1 shift from ecru and layer 2 from a dark brown.  This was all cut at 3 1/4" using my scraps.
The lion is from Create a Critter and is found on p. 57.  I cut him at 1 1/2" also using my scraps and Lion, Layer 1, 2 and Shadow function.
I added dimensionals behind the Circus wagon so it would look like you were peeking inside the cage and the lion was behind it far back.
The sentiment on the outside is from Hero Art Clear Stamp Set.  The inside sentiment is from a Retired Stampin' Up set called Birthday Greetings.
I also added some mini buttons I got at Walmart in a huge bag for $3.00.
Hope you have a "roaring" great day!
