PP #295 & RS #215 ~ Love!

Hi! I found some extra time this week to squeeze in a challenge or two. I liked LeAnne's CAS wild thing theme at The Paper PlayersRetro Sketches provided me with the perfect design, so I combined the two challenges.



My little Sweet P roars like a lion. In fact, when the dandelions began to spring up in the neighborhood she wanted to pick them. I told her they were dandelions and she roared!! Cutest thing ever!! So of course my wild animal had to be a lion. 

This little cutie is from Stamps by Judith. He's stamped on a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tags die and added to the card with foam tape. The papers I used are October Afternoon. I cut two strips with a grass die (Impression Obsession) and one with a PPP Stitched Borders 3 die. I can just picture this little fella hiding in the grass! The notebook die is from PTI and my sentiment is from Precious Remembrance Shop's This Moment stamp set. I liked the brushed scratchy look of it with the lion! A trio of 6mm Marigold sequins from PPP finish things off.

That's a lot of companies on one card LOL!! But I think they all work together and I love the way this turned out! 




Have a delightful day! ~Lisa
