Zoo Babies Love to Sparkle & Shine

Zoo Babies, Sparkle & Shine, Party Wishes, Stampin Up

Hello, Stampers! It’s a Fast Friday post for you! The week really flies so, by this time of the week, the cards have to be fast and fun, right!? I hope you like this one! It was a complete accident waiting to happen. LOL I got the stamp set, Sparkle & Shine, from the Occasions catalog and decided to use it last night. The question was – with what? It’s not one of those stamp sets that just grabs you but I did think it had potential. I really liked the background stamps (like the one on this card), as well as the sentiments. Anyway, long story short – what should I do with it?? So I went through It’s My Party DSP papers and picked out the Mint Macaron print. Then, right at this moment, I spotted the cute little Zoo Babies – already cut out from a card that didn’t survive. I had thrown the card away but couldn’t bear to throw out my cute little sweethearts after fussy-cutting them! (I know you’re with me there!) So, yep, they hopped up on my card, relieved to be on a card at long last! The rest of the card was easy after that.
