WILD thing...

Here is a sneak peak at one of the cards I made as part of my submission to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge DT search... I know, I know, but a girl can dream, can't she??

That tiny little felt heart made me think of the little heart stamp from the PS set "Zoo Crew." It has a zebra-stripy design, which made me think of that old Chip Taylor song recorded by the Troggs ... (FYI, I did not know that trivia off the top of my head--I had to look it up...)

Here's the final version:
Isn't that little zebra the cutest thing?  I used a {Stamps of Life} background stamp called "animals4prints" as a setting for the zebra, who is also part of the ZOO CREW set.
 The zebra was high-lighted with markers and then I fringed and ruffled the mane, which doesn't come across so well on the photo, but gives a nice tactile effect.
The font is an alphabet stamp set called "BOING" which I bought second hand from a Close-to-My-Heart friend. It also seemed to fit the wild theme.

I may save this card for my DH, for when we celebrate our anniversary next month.  He can be wild (we were at a Stanley Cup playoff game last night, where he lost his voice!) and he does still make my heart sing... I'll add "I think I love you" to the inside of the card ;)


  1. Super cute, Caroline! I love how you shaded your little zebra and combined so many great stamps to make your card. Kudos to you on being brave enough to apply! Best of luck!!

  2. LOVE it Caroline - fingers crossed :) :) :)

  3. Go Caroline! My fingers are crossed too!!
    I love the card... the zebra is darling! Something about the tension in his legs and the wild look in his eyes. I hope CB likes it!
