Yipes! Stripes! With Newton's Nook Designs

Welcome!  I have to admit, the day Jen sneaked 'Wild About Zoo':


That little zebra instantly reminded me of the colorful zebra from Fruit Stripe gum.  Don't remember Fruit Stripe Gum?  Curious as to what it is?  Here are some links to fill you in: 1970's commercial & 1990's commercial (you have that in your head now, don't you?).  It is difficult to find in stores, but you can find it at specialty candy stores online if you do a google search for it.  One of these days I will buy a brick of it and come up with some cute treat holder for it.

Anyway, that was my inspiration for today's card:


The cute little zebra's tails was difficult to fussy cut around, so I gave him a rainbow one instead created by 6 strands of embroidery floss twisted together in shades that matched the brightly striped paper.  I think this will be a perfect card for Operation Write Home for a deployed service member to send to his or her daughter back home.  

I am also submitting this card for Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge: Anything Goes (did you know Simon Says Stamp also sells Newton's Nook Designs?  They do!!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a bright & colorful day!
