Mane Squeeze - A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge

This week's challenge is to have animals on your card. This is a card I made for my husband for Father's Day and also to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary. The kids had made him cards but this was just from me. He really loved it. I decided to use it for this challenge because it is really one of my favorites.
I found I had a beautiful paper that serves as the background scene behind the lions. I used Twinkling H2os to enhance the coloring. You can't really tell with the scanned picture but the lions' manes and noses have a subtle shimmer.
Recipe: Stamps: High Hopes (Lions & Sentiment)
Ink: Stazon, Close to Cocoa
Paper: Su Wild Wasabi, Card base is River Rock, Patterned is Aerial by Memory Box
Flowers: Bazzill
Coloring: Gamsol Technique using Prismacolors
