What Does The Fox Say? Christmas Card Featuring Lyrics from The Fox Using CTMH Sparkle & Shine Paper

Hi all my fabulous crafting friends!  I am so excited!  I saw this song featured on "Dancing With The Stars Finale" this past Tuesday night and couldn't get the tune out of my head.  I didn't like it when I first heard it a few weeks ago; but it kind of grew on me.  It is a catchy little song; especially after you see the lyrics and understand what they are saying.  LOL!
I created this Christmas card using Mojo Monday's sketch; which I love.  After getting all the layers of paper completed on the front; I realized my little girl I planned on using wasn't going to work.  With this tune still in my head; I remembered I had purchased a little Christmas fox stamp in the dollar bin at Michaels a few weeks ago.  I decided to use it.  I looked up the lyrics and the YouTube video and decided to finish the card using the lyrics from this song.  I then created the sentiments and the border to go with the song.
If you haven't heard the song or watched the video; this card won't make any sense to you.  I hope you will take the time to watch the video.  It is only 3:45 min.  I have also included the lyrics; because it is hard to understand all the words.  I hope you enjoy it.  If not; maybe it will grow on you like it did me.  LOL!   
Here is my cute little fox Christmas card.  I hope you can see the silver embossing on front and the sentiment inside as well.  The silver embossing was hard to capture on the pictures.  I decided I would make mine a Silver fox rather than the red one mentioned in the song.  You know I had to be different.  I had a lot of fun creating this card.  I hope you have fun and enjoy it with me.

The Fox Lyrics

"The Fox" was released on 9/5/2013.
By Ylvis
Dog goes woof
Cat goes meow
Bird goes tweet
and mouse goes squeek
Cow goes moo
Frog goes croak
and the elephant goes toot
Ducks say quack
and fish go blub
and the seal goes ow ow ow ow ow
But theres one sound
That no one knows
What does the fox say?
What the fox say?
What the fox say?
What the fox say?
What the fox say?
Big blue eyes
Pointy nose
Chasing mice
and digging holes
Tiny paws
Up the hill
Suddenly youre standing still
Your fur is red
So beautiful
Like an angel in disguise
But if you meet
a friendly horse
Will you communicate by
How will you speak to that
What does the fox say?
What the fox say?
What the fox say?
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
What the fox say?
What does the fox say?
The secret of the fox
Ancient mystery
Somewhere deep in the woods
I know youre hiding
What is your sound?
Will we ever know?
Will always be a mystery
What do you say?
Youre my guardian angel
Hiding in the woods
What is your sound?
(Fox Sings)
Wa-wa-way-do Wub-wid-bid-dum-way-do Wa-wa-way-do
Will we ever know?
(Fox Sings)
I want to
(Fox sings)
I want to
I want to know!
(Fox sings)
Abay-ba-da bum-bum bay-do
