Lenny the Lion

Here we are again guys......Sunday so another fab challenge at The Crafty Pad chosen this time by Ali !!

Challenge #189
Sponsored by

And this is the fab prize up for grabs !!


Just right for you christmas creations !!

Thought I would join the girls from Team B this week and play along with them with this card !!

 Debbie's "Lenny the Lion" is a happy chappy who could be used for any age male family member, Dad, Brother, Grandpa etc.  The song that came to mind for me  is "In The Jungle" from the Lion King.

You must check this out
It will have you singing all day long !!

Wanted to add alot of texture to my card, so I have embossed alot of different layers with two different embossing folders, and then cut out a few leaves with a spellbinders die. Lenny has been printed out several times so I could decoupage him up and then coloured with promarkers. Added glossy accents to his eyes and nose. To finish off I used a Birthday Circle Sentiment and got one very bright and cheerful card !!

Check out what the rest of the team have created on
