Make a wish...

Good morning!

So I am squeaking this latest installment of my personal challenge to create birthday cards for each of the Stamping Bella Zodiac Girls in under the wire. We are at the tail end of the dates for Leo but I technically got this done and mailed off to my sweet friend, Kelly, last week. So here she is in all her fire sign fabulousness, Leo is the sign of the Lion and she is enthusiastic, powerful, creative, generous and extravagant. She can also be dogmatic and fixed in opinion. Her signature colors are orange and gold, the magnetic colors of the sun. Because Miss Leo looks so chic in her fab, fur coat I wanted to put her in a mod, city scene. So I grabbed this City Scene stencil from Altenew and some Distress Inks in various shades of orange to create that skyline. Again, the sentiment is a mix of stamps with the top being from the Papertrey Ink Stargazer sets and the description is included with Leo herself. 
Now tomorrow I will be sharing the newest 7 Kids challenge but I will be back on Wednesday with the altered version of Leo and you won't want to miss that!  ;)
