I hope you all have had a lovely weekend.  I'm here to share my DT card for the new "Stella Says Sketch" challenge over at Catch the Bug.

I used an image called "Zebra". I made it in two different sizes, used a black Promarker to color the stripes, fussy cut them and mounted them onto a stitched die cut oval.
I stamped a greeeting saying "Today is your day" and used a striped paper and 3 pearls. A very simple black and white card.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Seize The Birthday - Birthday + Topping Animal
2) Brown Sugar – #149 Anything Goes
3) Crafting with an Attitude - #4 Anything Goes
4) Moving along with the Times - Happy Birthday

I thought the zebras were paper pieced! That is some very good colouring! I do love striped backgrounds and have just purchased some stamps so I can make my own ( as you know I am not good with DSP)
