This looks so much like my lovely and elderly "Xena - the Warrior Princess" - I could not resist her.

This digi is from The Paper Shelter - I printed her out, colored with Copics and then used a die to cut the oval and accompanying red mat.  I made a tag out of it and elevated on foam tape.  The "stars" background has been embossed using a Cuttlebug  The crown and parts of the collar are faux embossed with Duo Glue and gold foil.  That can be seen best in the close-up to the right.  My final touch was a matching red ribbon for the tag, tied with gold cord.

 It is Monday and Craft Your Passion is starting Challenge #158 - "Adorable Animals".  The Design Team entries are lots of fun - and you can submit your entry by Sunday, 4/21 to be eligible for some very good prizes!
