Speedy The Cat's Challenge #49

A new challenge over at Speedy the Cat's Friends place....I had to play.  
Here are the rules: This week Geri has challenged us to spotlight any animal on your card.  
If you use a stamp from Mark's Finest Papers you'll be entered in the challenge twice for a better chance of winning the prize. 

I love this "Big Cats" set that I got about a month (or so) ago from Mark's Finest Papers and I especially love the lion face, so I just had to use him here.  

"In the jungle, the mighty jungle the lion sleeps tonight..." I know, I've got you singing now, don't I?  Me too!  Yikes!

I debated coloring the spotlight face of the lion, but I decided I'd let the stamp stand alone in both cases, the background and the spotlight.  I was hoping to create a "no frills" card for a "no frills" kinda guy.  (But then there's that lacy doily thingy haloing his head) 

Details:  I used Gina K Pure Luxury CS Ivory and Black Onyx for this card.   
DP is Basic Grey "Granola".  
Stamp Set:  Speedy Cat's Friends "Big Cats".  
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Coca
Misc:  Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants "Eyelets"
Fiber ribbon:  Gina K Designs 

Check out all the exciting things happening over at Speedy's the Cat Friend's place the blog of.....aka Mark's Finest Papers.  

Thanks for stopping by.
