THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT GRRRRRR!!

Hi there blog friends, I do hope you are all feeling well and crafty.  I did another bit of ironing this morning - booooo then had a crafty afternoon - wahey!  

About a week ago my friend had asked me to make a card for her grandson (she always gives me plenty of notice - lol) so I have been giving it some thought and I finally put my ideas onto paper today.  She knows he loves jungle programmes so she asked me if I had any stamps to do with jungle animals.  I had just the right stamps.  I bought them many moons ago but I 'filed' them without their front sheet unfortunately.   I believe - forgive me if I am wrong - that they are from Creative Expressions.  Anyway here is my card
 
 
I thought it would look nice as an easel card so I made the stopper out of a piece of punched card (Martha Stewart punch) and I stamped some gorgeous little paw prints on the top.  All of the stamps are on the same sheet.

 
I coloured the images in with my Promarkers then layered everything up as shown in the pictures.  The brown layer (Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle) under the images is some of that faux velvet paper, it feels nice and soft like animal fur!!!  The animal print paper is from my stash.
 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

I hope you like my card, thank you so much for stopping by.  I always love reading your comments and I know my little story on Tuesday made some of you laugh - that pleases me no end.  We all need laughs and giggles in our lives.  Your cards often brighten my day and make me smile, which is lovely. 
 
Thanks again my blog friends.  Hugs to you all.
