Fun Flock Lion

   I just love this card! The challenge for the week @ Cricut Circle Blog was to create something with rich fall colors. The palette was gray, orange, burgundy and brown. You also had to use at least 2 cuts and add texture. That's right at my alley!
   I started with my French Manor cartridge and cut the lion "door knocker" out of tan and chocolate brown card stock. Then I ran it through the xyron both side. After layering the pieces I added fun flock for the lions mane and chalk for his features, and a small piece of metallic gray card stock for the mouth and eyes.
   The medallion is also from French Manor. I used the negative pieces as well to accent the greeting.
   The base of the card is layered with tan, brown and orange card stock. I embossed the top piece with a folder from the Asian bundle and ran it through my CB. The greeting is from a M's stamp in the dollar bin and layered on burgundy card stock.
   I love to finish the inside of my cards so this dracula stamp was so cute. I just added some glossy gel pen to the hair and cape, cut it with a scalloped circle from nestabilities and there you have it!

What a great card! I have the same sentiment that you used on the front of your card. I love that sentiment. Thanks for joining us at TCS.
