Have a Grrreat Birthday for Polkadoodles

Hello lovely peeps

It's challenge reminder time at Polkadoodles where I am in my second month as a Guest Designer. 
How grrreat is that? :D   

 The theme during this fortnight is Tic-tac-toe

I have gone for the top row - Charms, Animals, Sentiment
The tiger image is a pre-coloured digi from the Sticks and Bones CD and I fussy cut around him before adding him on top of the papers. The dinosaur skull background was printed straight from the CD but the tiger skin paper was adjusted in Craft Artist to make it more fuzzy*. The lettering was done with MSE Retro Alphabet stamps and black Memento ink.

* Go to Photo Lab -> Adjustments -> Dust and Scratch Remover
and change the threshold to 62

 I have some cat-themed charms in my stash and I have used the little cat face (it was very tempting to go for 'meow' but the tiger gave me a look so I decided against it).

I could only find tiny black pearls in my stash so I coloured some larger brown pearls in with a black alcohol marker and left them to dry on the sheet for a few minutes before attaching them to my card. 

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Oddball Art Stamps  Add a Sentiment
