Inkspirations Sketch #95


First of all, I want to say a huge thank you to every person who has fought / is fighting for our country.  The freedom we have has been paid for with a price and I wish to thank those who have gone before us and blessed us with something many countries wish they had.   

I was in the mood for a fun card so I pulled out an old Stampin' Up set I just love, Wild About You.  I've had this set for many years now and still find the animals in it adorable.  Needless to say, this is a set I will not be getting rid of any time soon.

I found some funky leaf paper at Mike's a few months ago and decided it was a good fit for this card.  The lion's mane and head are both popped up and I added the little bird on his back for a little something and some grass to ground  him.  The card needed some colour so I added this bright orange ribbon to give it some punch.

The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.
