I am having such a time trying to get a decent image of this card, but this will have to do. My thoughts here were twofold; leopards strike me as such elegant, graceful felines, yet mysterious and exotic and also . . dangerous and earthy at the same time! I took some patterned paper with these wonderful stripes that reminded me of decorations from India and I cute around the design on the paper to make my paper 'ribbon' on the side. I embossed the cat's eyes in copper on black . . . its peering at you from the dark! And I used an elegant cuttlebug embossing folder in the background because of the big cat's elegance and grace, but rough twine between the image and sentiment--the mixture of the qualities in this large animal. Sort of an elegant/masculine card if such a thing is possible? Anyway, that's what I was aiming for. Happy hopping and good luck!
