You Wild Thing You!!!!!

Hello dear friends: Father's Day is just around the corner so I'm making another masculine card, this time, with the awesome help of The Paper Players challenge from LeAnne, "Wild Thing" theme, asking us to use a wild animal in our CAS card, here is mine.

I struggle with masculine cards and making CAS masculine cards.....well.....that is double trouble but heck!! I'm adventurous, right?
I honestly tried to keep it as CAS as possible, I didn't add any layers, I just die cut the frame with the Labels Collection dies, one for my handsome lion, the next die for the frame around it and the last cut was on the panel, I added just 3 brads and the sentiment stamped on vellum.
I again, combined several stamp sets to complete this card, the lion is from the beautiful and retired SU Zoo Review, stamped onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. The "pebbles" on the ground are from the "Gorgeous Grunge" set, the sentiment is from "The Wilderness Awaits", which I bent on the MISTI to fit on that banner.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.

The sentiment is from my stash and the trees from SU "Serene Silhouettes", which is retiring.
Here is the banner that inspired my card.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

This are the stamp sets I used for my card.

Great card for the guy group . This majestic lion really shows up good and your coloring just added some oomph to your card . I like the image inside too . It looks good stamped on watercolor paper because it adds a look of texture .
