Be Original...Card!

I made this card for the Cricut Creative Escape Contest for the Cricut Circle. You could only use Provo Craft and Bazzill products. All the cards are being donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. There really wasn't a theme (ie., birthday, get well, etc.) so I went with an idea that just made me happy!

The card is 4.25 x 5 inches. I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the zebras cut at 2". The sun is from Doodlecharms cut at 1.5". I used some chalk on the sun to give it some dimension. I also cut a couple small circles out of pink to make the cheeks for the sun. For the colorful zebra, I cut one from each color that I needed and then placed them all on top of each other and cut through all 4 at once. I then took a piece from each color and pieced them together like a jigsaw puzzle!

I used my Janome Sew Mini to do the stitching. I love that little machine!

Here's the inside of the card:

I used a rub on for the lettering.
