Midnight Madness challenge MMSC114-Get ready, get set, GO!!

A very good morning Tuesday to you, Midnight Madness day in the challenge world! As always, Priscilla has given us a fun sketch challenge, CAS or Fancy, YOUR choice!! Have you decided which way you will be heading in your creation, I find myself on the Fancy side this week!

I am using priscillastyles Lion image this week. This is the most adorable little critter and invokes all kinds of imaginative thoughts in my head. I know you have all seen the sweet, soft, cuddly and plush little stuffed animals out there for babies. Well, this image sent me on a journey to try and make a card to see if I could catch that feel. Let's take a look at where I went.
I used paper piecing to get the Lion's design and then left the cheeks, nose and eyes for prismacolors.  The background papers are the same papers I used for paper piecing, since I use alot of digital papers this was easy peasy!   This weeks sketch looks like this:

I got so caught up in this card, it just kept going and going. I hope I don't bore you silly but I took a "few" photos that I would like to share. ;)
The digital paper used is a free set found on line, the flowers are from Petaloo. The pearls, the pearl/lace around the circle are from Michaels, the little charm that says "Treasure" is from my stash, nestibilities and cuttlebug dies were used for the circle and corners respectively. Enough, more photos!!!

Oh Donna you really had fun with this fellow :-) The card with the plain green b/g paper and stitching is, to my eyes, the one which makes the lion image look most like a soft toy :-).
