LEO - Zodiac

  LEO - Zodiac Polkadoodles have released their NEW Zodiac Collection and it's jam packed full of amazing digital downloads with a Horoscope theme. For this stepper card, I used Leo and coloured using Copics. The background paper is from the Happy Cactus Collection as I thought it fit perfectly into my jungle theme. I die cut lots of various leaves as well as cutting leaves from the backing paper, and assembled behind the lion. The LEO text and sentiment are from the same Zodiac Collection. I finished off by attaching a few miniature flowers and a wooden ladybird.
