JUGs #74 & Cupcake Creations

I haven't been 'playing' with my paper craft stuff lately. I entered the Chocolate Fantasy, again, so that took alot of my time. So, its back to my paper crafting! Yahoo!
I used two challenges to create this card. JUGs has a layout challenge this week, and cupcake creations has a color challenge this week. So, I combined them both!
I really do love the challenges over at both Internet locations. They are creative, fun, and challenging. Its good to work outside your comfort zone, sometimes.
This card was made for one of my co-workers for Chocolate Fantasy. I made this card for my daughter. She was a big help, very creative, and she did that beautiful zebra. Hand-painted with edible paint. Wasn't it beautiful?
Most of the materials to make this bright and cheerful card are from Stampin' Up! Everything except the pattern paper. The only retired product used, is the oval fancy frame stamp. But, everything else is current.
