Happy Father's Day to My King !

   My husband is the King of our Home and the Ruler of our Domain  (at least he thinks so).  I made this card to reinforce that thought on his special day.
    I stamped the Lion on gold CS with black ink and then shaded with pencils to bring out the details. No copics or markers involved.  I let the color of the CS do most of the work. So simple but effective. Used the same gold CS as the card base and layered with a mat of Pattern DP and embossed Metallic Copper mat.  All layers were matted with black CS. Added black satin ribbon layered with metallic gold organza ribbon. Finished with sentiment gold embossed on black CS.  Assembled this following Sketch 222. shown lower left.
