Lion birthday card

This is my creation for challenge over at craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper

I have been asked to make this for a little boy for his birthday. I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with brown card and then wide strips of various animal print patterned paper. I have die cut the lion using a Tonic die in tan and brown and the crown in gold mirror card I have assembled the lion before attaching it to my card. I have die cut the ovals with Presscut dies from a nesting set in tan and brown to compliment the lion. The white oval will include a personalised message.
