Aud Sentiments Challenge #29

Good Thursday morning stamping phenoms.  Look how close we are to the weekend!  WooHOO!!!  Today is time for another fun challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge.  The sentiment challenge this fortnight is "A sentiment/card for a male".  We all need more of those cards, don't we.  Here's my take on that theme...

This crazy fun image is Napoleon from our sponsor this week, Digis with Attitude.  That 'grouchy' lion's stare is frightening, right?  OK... not frightening, but fun!  Digis with Attitude have many more of what I call 'grumpies' plus sentiments to go with them.  Why don't you take a few minutes and go see them all?

Amazingly this card came together for me rather quickly.  Of course, no problem figuring out what color the lion should be... light brown, medium, brown, dark brown.  haha!  And since he is so monochromatic, I wanted a bit more color and design in my papers and MME fine and dandy true blue worked perfectly for me.

If you want a good giggle, please bop over to all the DT's blogs as they have created some equally fun and grumpy cards.
