Sizzix Circus Collection

Have you checked out the Sizzix circus collection? :) I love them all but especially the lion. Not
only is he GRRRRREAT for your zoo or circus photos, etc. but also for making some FUN cards.
My first card example used some patterned papers and a computer typed sentiment. I also used KaiserCraft pearls for his eyes (they are the perfect size). Fast and easy which is always a winner with me. :)
My second card example only used cardstock. I typed the "no lion" on the computer and printed it out on white cardstock (also the sentiment below it). The lion is two different shades of red cardstock. There is also just a touch of black cardstock to balance things out on the bottom sentiment. I did some pen work with a black pen and added KaiserCraft black pearls for the eyes (these pearls are GRRRRREAT eyes for the lion). :) I added a Dymo label tape "Happy Birthday" sentiment on the bottom.....again FAST and EASY card. :)
Be sure to check out all the GRRRRRRREAT products at Scrapping Cottage.......they're awesome, no lion! :)
