Tree House Challenge and CARDS blog

I am so honored to be part of  Treehouse Stamps as a guest design team member for the month of April. As soon I received the newly released images, I went to play right away! I used this Zoofari set and created this lion card. Since the color scheme/challenge is yellow, lavender and neutral, I tried to use the colors accordingly.  I can't say that I am pleased with the result, BUT I sure know what to do next time when I work with the images like this one.
I used a few scraps for this card. Those included are the lavender wrapping paper and the kraft card stock which I retrieved from medical exam requisition pads. Good to recyle! Adding the floss for the lion's tails was a last minute idea.
Another great start for my weekend is to find my rain/cloud card (photo credit-Stephanie) in the CARDS blog today.
Love the sentiment....every day is a GIFT! And in case you are hungry, this was my happy meal this afternoon. It was the leftover from the meal that I made for my DD Stephanie.
I'm so good at sharing-I know :)
