Oh girl! Oh Girl!

This month, I was happy to see some new styles in the MFP images! It's always fun to mix up your images and styles!


I paper pieced this zany zebra with cardstock. Although, for that sliver of a tail, I pulled out my white gel pen. The card base is a premade/prebought (at a very reduced price) blank notecard.  If you are looking to put together a quick card, buy a pack or two the next time you see blank cards on clearance.

Oh yay! Another vote for a pink zebra! Cool backdrop for it though, you got the black and white in there although it isn't stripy.
