Circus Birthday! I'm Not Lion!

I'm not Lion-I think You're Great

Seems I never have cute little birthday cards  on hand when I need here is a good start on a little stash!  I used Darcie's Clear Circus Birthday from Inspiration Emporium and a fun little circus tent cut file from the Silhouette store. 

I colored up the little lion in 3 layers---a body, a mane and a face and separated them with pop dots. I love the fun dimension with the layers. I did the same thing with the little elephant as well. I added the little matching sentiments and tied the card shut with  twine-such a fun surprise to untie and find these cute critters inside!

Hope Your Day is TONS of FUN
