Have a roaring good birthday!

I made this birthday card for my nephew who will be turning 3 in a couple of weeks.  The layout of the card was inspired by a card I saw made by Mary from Cardz TV

The lion was cut from the Animal Kingdom cartridge - I have barely used this cartridge and have not touched it since the 'Create a critter' cartridge arrived so it was nice to use an old cartridge again!  The grass was cut on my cuttlebug with a die from 'My Favourite Things'.

I am entering it into 2 challenges:
Peachy Keen Stamps - Anything goes (use Peachy keen stamps).  I stamped the lion's face using the 'Animal faces (small)' stamp set.  Love those stamps, they give a real crisp image.
BBTB2 - Balloon birthday card (My balloons were cut on my cricut using the 'Birthday Bash' cartridge, page 67)

How cute is that face!!  Gotta love those peachy keen stamps!

Thanks for looking!
