My Little Assistant and a Totally Papercrafts Challenge

This is my Design Team entry for Totally Papercrafts Challenge #126, Inspirational Picture.

We have two sponsors this week.  The first is Menjen's.


The second is a new sponsor, MayzyArt.


I decide to work with a MayzyArt Stamps image, Lion Tamer, available here.  I do think I will be visiting her Etsy shop again soon.  I really like what I saw there.  I didn't stick too well to the color of the inspiration image.  I meant to but I gave my lion quite a bit darker coloring.

As you can see, my assistant Ella, is a great help.  Every time she sees the camera come out, she just can't resist getting in the way.  I usually have to watch her pretty closely.  She has been known to steal the embellishments off my completed cards.  And need I say, she's loves to fight me for my ribbon while I'm trying to place it on a card.

The papers I used were from: October Afternoon

Copics:  B21, B23, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7. E00, E11, E21, E23, E30, E33, E34, E35, 
E41, E42, E43, E53, G05, G09, R11, R22, R24, R29, Y15, Y17, Y38
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

This is such a fun card! I love the coloring & the DP is perfect. Now we know your secret weapon in making such beautiful cards! You have such adorable "assistants" giving you their help. I often joke that if you take any of my cards apart, you will probably find a stray cat hair glued somewhere inside!
