Seeing zebras in daylight

Howdy! Hope you're doing fine, apparently I made a faux pas with the last OLW card by using washi tape, I thought of it at as an embellishment, my bad. So I'm back to safe card stock layers. The CAS is sooo difficult sometimes, this was a pleasure. I've seen a lot of zebra patterned clothes, I do have a scarf and a dress with said pattern so here we go.

Crafty Calendar: Anything Goes
Pixie's Snippets Playground: Snippets (ribbon and the white cardstock strip)

Materials used:
-Papermania image heat embossed with Platinum embossing powder, coloured with Aqua Markers and Distress ink, dots of Stickles added.
- Freebie sentiment stamped with Versa FIne
- DQWV designer papers
- Tim Holtz flower die, Stickles, Itsy Bitsy stamens, ribbon from a shirt, half pearls glitter thread from stash
- Quickutz heart dies for the inside
Thank you so much for visiting, it means a lot to me. Hope you're having a nice Saturday evening. We've been to an out door concert and it poured down, I'm soaked and will make me a nice cup of cocoa and wrap me in a wool blanket and make some blog visits.
Love and hugs
Maarit

    I would have said washi tape is an embellishment also!!

  13. Great card! Lovin' those zebra prints!

    I also really like the fibers you added behind the flower...I have an embroidery floss container stuffed to the max with fibers like that. I must start using them again. They look wonderful on your card and the luffy, hairy ones look greatlooped behind a snowflake on Christmas cards.

    I think I have that same image...it is a small world when it comes to crafts!!!

  17. Good evening, Maarit. I do love your bold zebra pattern. It's a splendid background to that gorgeous red flower too. Loved the textures you've got peeking from behind that flower too. A cute idea to wish somebody a pleasant day. With regard to my long work hours: Yes it did get extremely tiring, but it was my responsibity, so needs must. I don't miss that stress at all, but it did give me the means to enjoy a rather expensive hobby in my retirement years. So guess it was meant to be. Then I had to micro manage my time, and multi task. Now I don't do either one! Also why I take afternoon naps as well! I used to promise myself that when I'd be so sleepy after lunch when I was working those long hours! All things have a purpose in the end! TFS &Hugs
