Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 218 Sponsored by Sparkle n Sprinkle, The Stamping Boutique and Di's Digi Stamps

Good Afternoon everyone.

There is another fantastic challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty and this week the theme is Ribbons and Bows.  Please come along and join in the fun. 

Here is my card...




This image is simply stunning but I made a bit of a boo boo with mine as he looks a bit more orange than I intended and I missed out the white bits on his face, which tigers seem to have.  Anyhow my image is from Sparkle and Sprinkle and is called Tiger Digital Stamp.  I've coloured mine in with ProMarkers and I really would like to have another go at colouring this in to see if I can do better.  I think I may also need some different shades of orange.
