Fab N Funky #55

Whew, this card took me awhile. Don't know if it was the mojo or the paper or whatever that wasn't working, but it seems that lately, it takes me 2 or 3 tries to come up with something I'm happy with. I used some shaped paper as the background on this one, and I really struggled with the "off center" balance of this card. (And I just realized I forgot the bling on his crown, ack! Just pretend his crown is sparkly and gold, ok?) I did have some totally cute images from our sponsor this week - Pink Petticoat, just love this little lion.
This week's Fab N Funky challenge is a little different, we want to see some warm and toasty colours. Think sunshine, crackling fires and cozy sweaters and you'll be on the right track.
