and here is the card I came up with to put him on....
and a close up of the background....
Initially he did not have a tail, so I double punched a small and large oval and attached a small heart. I used Pocket Silhouettes for the 'grass' and also tried to 'sponge' the sky again, but infortunately you can't see it that well. I also used the "Sanded" BGS on the card to add some rough texture. I am not totally happy with the way the area behind the lion turned out...but I learned a lot putting it together.
