A lion - with love

Is it Monday already? Where did that weekend fly to? Well, here we go, off on another week of working. Never mind, it pays for all the crafty stuff (and my blog candy).

Today's card is for the Creative Inspirations challenge - which very appropriately this week has a challenge of 'animals'. I think my lion fits the bill perfectly. Well, I think my mojo was still flowing when I made this card. I actually really enjoyed making this one. Items used:
Papermania Exquisite paper
Whimsy Lion stamp
Hampton Art Love Fluff Large stamp (underneath the feathers)
My peg stamp was used for the border
Scribbles Swirl die cut (Hey - I made the ABC challenge 'D for Die cuts' card at last!)

Lace, feathers and ribbon from my stash
Brushed Corduroy distress ink

Hope you all have a great week.
Thanks for looking
Sharon xx
