Courageous Carl

Hi all

I made this card as a "get well soon" card for my Uncle Jim, he has cancer and was operated on last week, the surgery went well so thank goodness for that. I didn't want anything negative or hospital related on the card, so I chose to put a lion on there as a symbol of the courage that is needed to fight cancer.

Medium - Promarkers
Everything Else - Glossy Accents, Gold Stickles

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Card Crafter's Circle - Textures (distressed, stickled edges - surprisingly nice to touch!)

Thanks for looking :)
