Good morning y'all! Today starts a new linky party over at Craftin' Desert Divas with a "Shake-It Up" theme. I have been wanting to make a card like this for awhile now, and thanks to my Misti I was able to make it happen!
I embossed a Zebra print background that I have had for years (company went out of business) and then inked it up with some Tim Holtz distress inks. I cut out the base with the new PICTURE FRAME dies and matted that on a normal card base. Next I used my Stitched-In Circle dies for the scalloped circle as well as the base. To get the distress look on the background I used some of my Tim Holtz reinkers mixed with water. The adorable zebra is from WILDLY CUTE, the balloons are from the PARTY DIES set and last but not least the sentiment as well as the BIG die cut is from the newly released WISHFUL THOUGHTS stamp set and WISHFUL THOUGHTS WORD dies. I did use a mixture of CDD sequins called BLUE HEARTS, PINK HEARTS, a few from SHERBERT as well as some that have been discontinued.
I sure hope you come on over and play along with our SHAKE-IT up linky party over at CDD!
