I'm Not Lion...

This card I made using Sketch Saturday's sketch challenge this week:

I hope it's okay I used an oval shape instead of a circle for the sentiment!

The second challenge I chose today is over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps blog, "Let's Go Green" where you have to use something recycled. That little charm on my card came from my 4-year-old daughter's necklace - she accidentally broke it last week. And, of course, I used Leo, a High Hopes stamp, as my main feature!

Over at Stamp Something they're having a challenge, "Brown Plus Something". I hope coloring Leo with some yellow didn't disqualify me! A lion without any shade of yellow just wouldn't seem right! I chose pink to go with my brown. I love pink and brown together! Plus, I thought it would go well with the little heart charm theme!

My Fourth challenge met today is "Buttons & Stitching" from Cupcake Craft Challenges. I love both buttons and machine stitching, so I was glad to have an excuse to do both on this card! :)

What do you think? Did it all combine well? :o)
