I decided, as always, to use a lion theme as he is a true Leo. I had seen Tagxedo on a few blogs so went there to see if I could do anything and came up with this colourful lion. The background came pure black, so in PS I played with it and added a blue mask around the the edge. The digi papers and some of the buttons are a freebie by Dawn by Design at Digichick, the spotted buttons are by Gina Cabrera also at Digichick, I added a label in the same colour as one of the papers and "warped" it in PS. I then added multi coloured embroidery thread wound around a few times. I'm happy to say he was pleased with it.
