Miss You Card For Two Challenges

Happy Monday, bloggers! I hope you all had a safe and relaxing weekend. There are still a few hours left to enter to win my blog candy giveaway from the Grillin' & Chillin' Bug Hop. Click HERE to enter before midnight EST. I will announce the winner tomorrow.
I made this card for my niece, Lexi. I don't get to see her very often, so the last time she visited we got to go to the zoo and she absolutely loved the lions. Of course, they were all asleep and we had to stay at the exhibit forever until one of them roused themselves up and about. This adorable lion from Create a Critter reminded me of that trip and I know will make her smile!

I cut the lion at 3" from Create a Critter and embossed him with the Swiss dots Cuttlebug folder. The horizontal edges were punched with a Fiskars punch, and the vertical with an EK Success punch. The background paper is from Core'dinations Cosmo Cricut line. I added the crystals with my iRock. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and when you pull the tab at the right, it reveals the hidden message.
I am entering the card in the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
