The Lion Sleeps Tonight

I couldn't help but whistle "In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight" the entire time I made this card.  I apologize in advance if it gets stuck in your head, too.  Since I used the ever-versatile Martha Stewart fringe scissors to cut the grass, I am entering this card into the Moxie Fab World Trimming & Cutting Challenge.
Finished card size is 4 1/4"x5 1/2" not including the grass on the top.
And wouldn't ya know it, I used a plain ol' garden variety lunch sack to make the grass.  I layered several strips of grass starting at the top of the card.  After all of the grass was adhered, I started cutting into the tops at an angle not unlike a stylist would trim your hair.  This gave the grass a more random, natural look.  Lastly, I adhered the cute little lion (Offray) and stamped the sentiment. 
Cute little bugger, huh?
Now I wouldn't leave you hanging without posting the song, right? 
Enjoy!
