Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

I almost forgot to post my pic of this months issue of Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft! This is Leo Lion and he is the star of the card! For this challenge we were asked to use song lyrics as the sentiment for a card. There were some great cards made for this! I did "I just can't wait to be king". My sister and I had a brainstorm; I had picked a few stamps and I was trying to match them to lyrics... I was thinking "in the jungle" which is rather boring and she came up with the genius idea of The Lion King! Every time I look at the card I get the song stuck in my head!

I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!

I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair
I'm gonna be the mane event
Like no king was before
I'm brushing up on looking down
I'm working on my roar
Thus far a rather uninspiring thing
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

Amy, this is just so brilliant, the way you put this card together, and your super gorgeous coloring on Leo. I so love the little crown you added. Of course now I have the song in my head too! I am just thrilled for you to have this published! But no wonder. Just look at it! You did such a fantastic job and it is now my favorite creation by you!
