Friday, March 22, 2013 like a {lion} Mama and Baby Lion Birthday

Hi Crafters,

It's our second challenge on Cut it Up! blog.  Thanks for coming to visit!

I created this card for the challenge March: in like a lion, out like a lamb.

The original design had a mane on both the lions but I didn't add it to the larger lion to create a lioness. This birthday card is for a new mom who is celebrating her birthday at the end of the month.  The card is an A2, the layers are cut at 4x2, 4x4.75 and 3.5x3.4.  I stitched along the bottom orange piece with a zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine.
I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the lions and the sentiment.
The mama lion and her layers are cut at 2.84 inches
The baby lion and his layers are cut at 2 inches.
