Black & White Baby Zebra

  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  We started our fall soccer season on Saturday though you wouldn't have known it from the weather as the temperature was 90 or so....totally not my idea of fall!  The kids did a great job and enjoyed themselves in spite of the heat.  We are also working on re-doing our spare bedroom so we worked in there putting up crown molding.  I did manage to squeeze in some stamping too!

  I used 2 challenges for this card; Stampin' Royalty and CAS(E) This Sketch.  I don't know how successful I was at either challenge but it was fun to stamp anyway!  The Stampin' Royalty challenge is black & white with a pop of color.  I hope the ladies there are OK with Very Vanilla in lieu of white.  I wanted to use this pattern from the Flashback DSP and it was Vanilla and and not white.

 The Very Vanilla panel is embossed with the new Lucky Stars embossing folder and pierced around the edges.

  The sweet zebra is embossed with black embossing powder and cutout with the oval framelits.  The sentiment is embossed in white.  Definitely don't forget to use your Embossing Buddy to keep those stray flecks away!

  My pop of color for the challenge comes by way of 3 candy dots adhered to silver sequins from the Holiday catalog.

 Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
