Speedy the Cat


Evening all!
I made this card for DH's birthday next month and am entering it in the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers . This is my first time entering a challenge for them and it was very simple this week, we were to use a die cut of our choice. I used the Stampin' Up top note and then layered an oval in ivory card stock with my lion image from SU's retired ( a long time ago) set "Serengeti". My husband has been to Africa hunting 4 times and loves this set. I placed a piece of burlap type ribbon behind the die cuts.

The card base is SU chocolate chip and I layered another piece of the ivory stamped with the female lions on the inside.
Have a great evening and if you are stuck in the heat wave like me, try and stay cool.

Love the simple, organic feel of this. I'm sure Speedy thinks of himself as a lion. Thanks for joining us at Speedy's Friends.
