My card today features the adorable lion from My Favorite Things Wild About You Stamp Set. Jamie at Not 2 Shabby carries a large selection of stamps and dies and she always has a discount! PLUS, she has really FAST shipping, which is always a good thing! I colored the cute lion with Copic Markers.

I used a couple of My Favorite Things Dies to create this scene: Fishnet Cover Up and Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frames. The sentiment is from the TGF How Rawr You Stamp Set.
For the yellow, grassy area, I just cut thin strips into the cardstock. I glued the fishnet die into place around the border of the yellow paper, and pulled strips of paper through and curled them with my scissors. Next I took my craft knife and cut off the top of the fishnet. To create the background scene, I used one of the MFT cloud border dies to cut a piece of cardstock. Starting at the top of the white cardstock, I rubbed blue chalk on the edge of the cloud border die-cut. I just keep moving it down and sometimes flipping the cloud border to the back side to get the desired look. Next, I rubbed Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink starting from the middle of the white cardstock to the bottom of the cardstock. Then I took a piece of gray cardstock and tore it to form a rock. I distressed the edge with Black Soot DI, and glued it down. Now is the time to figure out what sentiment you are using. You will want to stamp that before you start assembling the card.
To assemble the card, I glued the black scalloped rectangle to the fishnet die-cut. and then glued the background scene to the back of the black scalloped rectangle. Next I placed the entire panel onto foam to raise it for added dimension.
