No Lion, You're the Best!

Hi Crafty Friends,
I realized after making this card that it's a bit "Christmas-y" but GUY cards are so hard to make and I love the red and green combo with the lions. This is a "Just Because" card for a guy friend or spouse.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What are your favorite color combos?
A: Me? I love blue and yellow.... and I LOVE red and green and wish it didn't always= Christmas.

 I started my card by stenciling the background with an Altenew polka dot stencil and die cutting the shapes from a stitched rectangle die set. I inked the edges and added the fun sentiments. Then I mounted them on the card base with the patterned paper and finished my card with the cute little lions!
