Blogger's Challenge - week 48

48?? wow! This week's theme was animals. I was so into my Wild About You set after the baby gift set I made a few posts back...that I used it for this challenge. Today's card is super simple! I have a stamp camp tonight that I have been getting ready for, so this card needed to be quick and fun.


The card base is Kraft...love it! (wonder why I don't use it more????) The lion was stamped three times onto very vanilla. Once on the main image panel and twice on scrap card stock - once in more mustard and once in really rust. I cut those out to layer the lion's head on stampin' dimensionals. It was sponged and layered onto chocolate chip. The really rust panel was stamped with flannel plaid background in really rust. I stamped the edges of the more mustard panels and the really rust panel with the argyle stamp from All in a Row. I gotta tell you...that one stamp is worth the price of admission for that entire stamp set...i love it! The chocolate chip accent was punched with the word window punch in chocolate chip. Both that and the sentiment panel is adorned with aged copper hodgepodge hardware. (which will be retiring at the end of this catalog..... :( )


That about does it for today....I have another male child card stocked up! Yay me!!!!

Adorable! I love that lion image. I rarely use Kraft card stock, so may have to change my mind now as it looks great with your card.

Love how you did the layers for the lion. And your faux stitching is fantastic--I can never get that stamp lined up straight when I try it . . .
