Hi from the Lion Card

Gosh, sometimes I really have a hard time coming up with titles for my posts...ha ha! If I had a pet lion, this would be a great card to send to someone to let them know the lion was saying hi. Right? No, I'm not on crack and contrary to what you might think, I DID sleep last night. Actually, that's why this wasn't posted yesterday like I had planned. Oh well! Here's my card for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #51. I'm actually glad I waited a day to post it, because I realized this morning that it needed the ribbon and it looks much better with it.

I really love this layout -- inspired by Becky Carafa's "My Fave" card here. I love her clean and simple style!

Supplies: Wild About You, Say it with Scallops (hi), More Mustard marker & cardstock, Rose Red ink & marker, Chocolate Chip cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Raspberry Tart DSP, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Trio Flower Punch, Vintage Brads, 1/4" White Grosgrain Ribbon, SU Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates for the Big Shot, Hobby Blade, Stampin' Dimensionals

Oh for sure, the ribbon really adds the perfect finishing touch for the card.

LOL! I must be on crack b/c I find myself stamping until like 2 in the morning lately... I love what you did with the lion! I was thinking of using him too but I went with the giraffe instead. But I like the pink mane! :) And the negative trio punch!
