Lions and Stripes and Guest Designers, Oh My!

Today marks the fifth Hambo Hoedown Challenge! Wow, did that first month go by quickly. Today's challenge is all about LION:
Come and join in the fun! Make a masculine card (little boys count too!) with Lion (or any Hambo image) and add some stripes on your design somewhere. See what the other Design Team members (AKA Bacon Bits) did HERE.

I colored my image with Copic Markers and then cut out the lion.  I used my Scor-Pal to score some "stripes" on the front of my card. I punched a small oval out of Basic Grey DP (more stripes!) for Lion to stand on.  The rest of the design is some fun Doodlebug stickers I just got last week. 
Easy peasy!

Be sure to check out the Hoedown post today about how you can be a Guest Designer for the Hambo Hoedown!
