Maracas Dancing Lion

This card is inspired by the sketch this week at
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 

I started with matting a white base card with dark brown cardstock...
* Pattern Paper - From Michael's single sheet rack.* Strips - Are plain yellow card stock. I added Happy B'day printed ribbon to the bottom strip. Addedgreen Brads, for the tassel I used yarn.
* Embossing - Provo Craft "Spots & Dots" folder
* Image & Musical Note - Are stamps  from a set by Recollections called "Jammin' Animals".
*Lion Image - I used water color pencils to color the image. I used a Septum Noir "Silver" glitter pen on the maracas center for bling. I cut out a small circle from a yellow Pom-pom to create a fuzzy Lion tail. Added googily eyes, and used a Gelly roll pen in gold to color the musical note.
* Ovals - I used three sizes from the Cottage Cutz "Ovals" set.
SORRY! Don't know why the font size is showing up so small. Yet, the last part I entered at the bottom of the post turned out right...go figure. Maybe it will correct it's self back.
