Happy Birthday Amy! Today is my niece`s birthday. She is turning 11! It is difficult to know what to make for my niece. She is not a very girly girl nor is she a total tomboy. So I decided to try my hand at another punch art card I saw on Jackie Topa`s website.
I punched out the blossom twice in More Mustard and sponged the edge with More Mustard Ink. I also punched out another blossom using So Safrron (this piece was used for the paws on the sign). Again, I sponged it with More Mustard. Using my stylus, I curled the edges of the lion`s mane up to give it some dimension. I had some scrap So Saffron that was already embosssed, so I decided that it would be perfect for the lion`s face as nobody`s face is smooth. I also sponged the edges with More Mustard. Once all the pieces were sponged, I layered them using pop-ups. For the paws, I had cut out one of the petals and layered that piece a little lower than the head.
I hand drew the freckles and the whislers. Punched out the nose using the heart from the Owl Punch and the eyes. I then added the wiggly eyes to give it the surprise expression he has.
Mounted the DS paper onto cardstock, tyed the Baker`s Twine around, stamped my sentiment and mounted that onto Cherry Cobbler.
I think he is absolutely adorable!
Here is the recipe:

Punches: 3/4" circle, Owl Punch, 1 3/8" circle, Blossom Punch
