Black and White Stripes

This is my latest DT card for Aud Sentiments. The theme is nice and simple
Anything Goes and out sponsors are  Delicious Doodles

This is one of our sponsors images. It is just one Zebra, but I have flipped the image round using Serif and made a pair. The image has been cut out using a Sue Wilson frame die and then the matts cut using a grande nestable die.

The background has been embossed using the Crafters Companion Clouds folder, which I have brushed a little Black Soot distress ink over to make the clouds stand out. The corners are a Cheery Lynn Swirl cut in two colours and then a pearl in the centre. 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
