Wild Thing

Getting a little wild here today!  So........what's the answer...... is a zebra black with white stripes OR white with black stripes?  Guess that's the question for the day.  I'm sure there's a correct answer to that but when I was a child we were always trying to determine which it was.

I've used a stamp from Repeat Impressions for the zebra and frame and the sentiment is from Stampendous.  I added a bit of Christmas paper, a rectangle die, and the tiny heart. A very clean and simple card.  I think I just made a Valentine card for next year!

I'll enter this in the challenges at Simon Says Stamp (alphabet x, y, or z), Addicted to CAS (animal) and at My Time to Craft (zoo animals).


Thanks for stopping by..........

This is a great card Lynn and I like the contrast of the zebra print with the red diagonal. That's a very cool look and then the little heart pulls it all together.

Zebras are very popular with a certain someone I know and love. I have bought many of all kinds in the past 20 years! So, of course, I love this fabulous card, Lynn! Sensational work!

Brenda said...

Oh my this is a fabulous card Lynn! I'm wild about it!! lol Yes, pun intended. I think this is a beautiful card and I have no idea if a zebra is black with white stripes or white with black stripes, but I've always believed they where white with black stripes. lol I love that bit of Christmas paper, the red and black color combo are always a favorite of mine. I love that zebra frame and your little heart. I think too you got your first Valentine made for next year! Well done Lynn! Hugs, Brenda

I love that zebra stamp, Lynn! Great job using the zebra print paper combined with the red and white stripes. Really effective.
BTW, I always voted for white with black stripes but I have no idea why. :-D
