Slitcoast CC321 challenge

I was on holidays in Florida for the last two weeks.  We went to Jacksonville for two days and I got to meet up with Faith and Lois. I also got to meet a few other stamping friends of Faith's. We went out for breakfast, crazy shopping trip and then dinner. It was such a fabulous day and I was so thrilled to meet Lois and Karen. I think that they all wore me out with the shopping, we went to 5 stores and I spent way too much money...LOL Can you believe I had bruises on the tops of my feet. LOL
My husband Chuck got the chance to catch up with Faith's husband Mark. Even though it was a great day for all of us poor Markie got sick. He went to the hospital and got diagnosed and is on medication, I hope he gets better real soon. I couldn't believe how much he's grown since the last time I saw him.

Roxie, what a wonderful sketch.
This is my card for the CC321 challenge.
I decided to go with a black and white theme so that I could feature this beautiful white tiger by Mark’s Finest Papers.*Big-Cats-Stamp-Set/Detail

There is some trickery in the size of the tiger, IRL he is much larger. I stamped the image in Palette Noir Black, then photo copied the image to word where I reduced the size to my liking and then quadrupled the image. I addes blue to the eyes and pink to his nose with Copic markers.
I then printed and cut the images for my card, I added a black matting.
The bg is partially embossed with a TH’s folder.
With the small panel I decided to move it for conveniece of the design and used a black ribbon.
I popped the images to get more depth.
I hope that you love this Big Cat as much as I do.
