Lullaby Little Darlings

Greetings!  A simple card to share with you today that was created for Challenge 180 - Stand Out Stripes over at 365 Cards.  The challenge is to make a card with stripes being sure to make the stripes the focus.  I have been systematically going through my art studio and setting aside materials (and stamps) that I don't see myself using again.  In the process, I came across a couple of these little animal squares, already stamped in Distress Ink Barn Red, and this sheet of striped paper and the card came together from there.  I added red and white striped ribbon in the center and since Mr. Zebra has stripes, I thought he worked well too!  The animal stamps are by Cavellini and the Mother/baby and sentiments, stamped in Crushed Olive DI, are by Hampton Arts.

Love the stripes in this card and having seen an elephant in real life this year I love that it's red on your card :) Many thanks for joining us at 365 Cards.

Hi Yvonne
Is all well with you?
This card is positively delightful, so adorable and yet also has a freshness to it.
