Ladybug crafts September challenge :)

Hello everyone :)
Running late as ever lol - I really can't believe it's September already!
I have lots of Christmas cards to get making, plus lots of gifts etc as I am hoping to get a craft stall somewhere a little nearer the time (I would like a regular stall somewhere but just can't find the right spot at the moment).
Also I have some exciting news, but I shall blog about that separately after this!
However, as it's the start of the month that means that it is challenge time over at the Ladybug Crafts challenge blog.  this month it's ..
Anything Goes
it was going to be something totally different but I mixed everything up with the months, so
 Anything Goes it is :)
I have done something a little different for me - I had a fab Whimsy stamp I have never inked up but I also had some age old papers which I loved the colour of and didn't know what to use them for, so I thought I would see if I could put them together even though I wouldn't normally.
I love the image but I'm not sure about the card, but my hubby thinks it's fab albeit different :)
So what do you think...

I coloured the lion with Spectrum Noir pens and pencils.  As I said the paper is some I've had for ages so I have no idea who it's by.  I stitched around the mats just because I fancied it :)  The sentiment is by Crafter's Companion from their Sentimentals range - 'Greetings'.
I just love that lion - well being a Leo I have to don't I!
Anyway, as I said it is something a little different but I kind of like it :)
Right back soon with my exciting news
(Oh, don't forget to join in the challenge :) )
