I Aint Lion

My daughter, well known for giving me last minute crafting challenges, actually gave me advance warning that she needed a baby boy card for her friend and it was made and given to her weeks ago.

THEN a few days ago she said to me 'They've called the baby Leo! Can you make a card with a lion on it?'

You can see I've done something a little experimental with shape on this card - not sure if it works - but if she doesn't like it she can always go to a shop and buy a card (gasp!).  Anyway, I stamped and white embossed the lion (Little Yellow Bicycle) and sentiment (Creative Expressions? ) and the stitch-like circle (49 and Market).

  3. I think the shape is very interesting and I'm sure your daughter and her friend will both love it! I love the all yellow color palette!

  4. Beautiful card,thanks for sharing with us at CraftyCatz this week...x

  5. Oh my, what a coincidence, one of my friends had a baby boy the other day and has called him Leo - I wonder if it's the same person? A really super card and perfect for his name. Thanks for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz

  6. It's so much fun to be able to create cards for specific requests, and I know this one will bring a smile! I really like the design with the asymmetrical use of the scallops and the way the image is encircled. So glad you joined the challenge at Four Crafty Chicks this week. Wishing you a blessed Easter!
