Birthday stripes

Do You Stack Up has a stripe challenge.
And The Paper Players had a sketch challenge:

The birthday girl likes zebras and purple so glad they had a stripes challenge this week!  Here is my card.

I layered all the patterned paper.
The zebra paper has chalk rubbed on the edges.
I used my new Fiskars border punch on the striped paper.
The 7 is a sticker and that's mounted on a little square that I punched using a pretty Fiskars lace corner punch.
I didn't follow the sketch exactly because I put my sentiment up higher but I wanted to tie it all together and liked how it looked.

Here is the inside after I wrote on it!  I edited it a bit in Photoscape to hide my writing (great free editing program).

Thanks for swinging by!


  1. What little girl would not love this color scheme! All the pinks and purples and those zebra stripes! Fabulous job. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week.

  2. So much fun! Pink and purple zebras are perfect for a seven year old girl! Adorable card...Thank you for playing with my sketch at The Paper Players!

  3. I know my zebra loving daughter would love this card! Cool! Thanks for joining us at DYSU.

  4. Fun zebra stripes...and PINK!! What little girl doesn't love a lot of pink?! The splash of purple creates a fun color combo. So glad you joined in the fun at The Paper Players!
