I knew I wanted to color up the lion first - you see I am a Leo... always loved Lions - just not with my donkeys :0)
So he is all colored up with my Copics - then I used a Rubber Stamp Tapestry grass stump to add some blades of grass - The sky is chalk - he is cut in a circle with my Nesties, and a larger mat as well. Then I doodled the edge.Following Bev's sketch I used all Heidi Grace pattern papers - I think they all go together... they are all the same collection - LOL but now that I keep looking at it I am not sure that they do.. HA! Isn't if funny that happens. I used a Doily Lace border punch for the lace border. I inked the edges of everything, and then white gel pen stitched the edge of some of the pieces. I punched the flowers with a EK Success Retro flower punch, button centers tied with twine.
I LOVE the sentiment... great size, font and well it just fits this lion don't you think? It is Magnolia as well.
I do hope you will go and see all of the DT cards this week, and then give Bev's sketch a try.. it is a super fun sketch and well - as usual there is a GREAT prize up for grabs!!
I'll be back a little later for a InStyle Blog hop... :0)
