The Lion feeds tonight

Now this is being organised my son's birthday isn't till the end of July and being a Leo this card is perfect for him. I've used the Magnolia Lion from their latest collection and BG Granola papers, the sketch started with Dawn's Papertake Weekly one. The lion did give me a bit of headache with the mane but in the end I cut round the fringe and slipped the top of the head through the slot I had made and then I wanted to use raffia which I knew I had brought but could I work out where I put it. The sentiment is Simon Says Stamps its stays permanently on my desk and I made a couple of tags so I could cheekily enter into the Cute Card Thursday tag challenge.
I've tried to photo the layers, not sure you can see how I slot his head in.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!.
