Birthday card ... FMS23



I'm trying to squeeze this card in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week before it closes.  This was my inspiration ...


This is my finished card ...


Stamps:  Zoo Review, It's Your Birthday (SU)
Paper:  White, Black
DSP:  The Classics by The Paper Studio
Ink:  Memento Black, Versa Mark
Accessories:  clear embossing powder, Copic Marker, brads

I went with a simple masculine card and wanted to let the zebra prints do the work for me.  This card will be postal for my nephew's birthday.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,
Pam~

Pam great black and white too! I love the animal prints and also great for masculine card. I agree... The zebra stripes make easy work of this great card.

PS: Last year I even made a homemade Giraffe BG from my rubber scraps... now you reminded me I never made the Zebra BG stamp! Very cool.
