Just Magnolia Too Challenge - 3D card

Wow - we've been enjoying such gorgeous sunshine so I do apologise for my lack of posting this week! It's been wonderful having such hot weather FINALLY! Better late than never I guess!!
So today I have this card for you which I've entered into two challenges - Friday Sketchers for the sketch and Just Magnolia Too for their monthly challenge to use the 3D technique superbly demonstrated by Debby on the challenge blog.
Magnolia's Lion is a new addition to my collection and am so happy to have inked it up - it is gorgeous!! I coloured the image in with my copics and distressed the edges with my distresser and Vintage Photo distressed ink. The papers are from the BG Marrakech pad. Jute, twine, buttons, Retro flower punch and my sewing machine add all the finishing details to the card. For some reason the photo really doesn't do this card any justice - it looks so much nicer IRL!!
Here's a close-up of the 3D parts on the lion.
Thanks for stopping by today - I love to have you visit! And I received such a wonderful start to my day to discover I had won this weeks challenge over on the Winter Wonderland blog! I have chosen 3 fabulous sets of digi images/templates from Regina over at The Cutting Cafe. This is the first time I'll be using this so I'm looking forward to playing around with those!
Thanks for your beautifully inspiring comments - I really love reading them! And tomorrow I will be posting my Candy #2 - so be sure to come back!! :)
