Birthday card + Crafty Emma - animal antics

This is for my Great-grandson's 5th birthday on Saturday, I have yet to put the tag on. I am also entering it for the animal antics challenge over at Emma's blog
It's my first 7x5 easel card, not too sure if it works as well as a square one!
Base card is from PMS. I cut the lion on the Cricut then cut an extra mane which I hand cut to give dimension. Backing card I found in my stash whilst having a clearout, same for the tree stamp which unfortunately doesn't have a name on it!
The lion on the sentiment panel is from a photograph by my friend Pat. Lion and sentiment panel are both popped with foam pads :o)
