Have Courage - Oz Showcase

So for the second post today I have the Oz Showcase for My Stitch Back in Twine. I was given Courageous Lion to use, and this is what I came up with:

I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and highlighted areas with DoCrafts Glitter Markers. I cut a textured piece of green paper to look like grass and added this to the bottom of the card. Then I cut a wavy piece from gold glitter cardstock, to resemble the yellow brick road (or more like gravel in this case - small bricks?). I fussy cut the bottom of the image and then overlaid this onto a scalloped circle from X-cut nesting dies. I used the next die up on old glitter cardstock to create a shine behind the lion. To finish I hand wrote the sentiment onto the green paper (which is difficult to see in the photo) - 'Have courage to follow your yellow brick road'.

Check out the Creative Moments blog for more creations from this range - and also a chance to win a lovely die, just by giving us your opinions.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create #188 Anything Goes

Here are some more of the woolly animals you have been looking forward to:
