Delicious Doodles 1st Birthday

Hello, it must be a Bank Holiday weekend here as the sun is in hiding!
Although my blog may have been a bit quiet these passed few days I have been making cards and I begin with my entry into Teri's Birthday celebrations over 
at Delicious Doodles.  For this card I have used the gorgeous Zebra and so far I havent managed to make a card with this attractive pair in anything other than black & white!  It's funny how certain images demand a certain thing and black & white is just it for this one!  Do you have anything that has it's own rules?
If you haven't seen Teri's images before hop on over and have a peep, she has a variety of images from the natural, like above, to mystical and magical also, I really love her cobweb as it can be resized making it perfect for all of those Halloween cards I've yet to make!

DD2 and her fella and Murphy the chocolate Labrador are coming today so Ive prep'd all of the veg, made the dessert and the chicken is sat waiting to go into the bag prior to roasting; all that's left is for me to get DH up in a little while and lay the table.

Whatever plans you have this holiday weekend I hope you enjoy yourselves!

Lovely card Keryn - black and white it great with this and its such a fab image too! You could try using one vibrant colour, like red to see if it has more of an impact. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs, Claire x

I like black and white for your Zebra card. I suppose an alternative would be the hot African colours to contrast with it.

Paula Gale said...

what a gorgeous card Keryn... I agree, i don;t this this would look as nice in any other colourway.

When DD2 was coming with the lovely Murphy, did you dog-proof the house... i bet you certainly knew he'd visited!!!!

Catch you soon
