Have a Zoo-rific Day

I am so ready for this holiday weekend (it's Labor Day in the US).
My husband took off tomorrow, so we will have a 4-day weekend.  I may need to plan a girls' day out one day, LOL!

I made a quick little card tonight.  It came together rather easily!

I used an old Cornish Heritage Farm stamp set from the Kim Hughes Collection.  The cute little peacock colors up really quickly!  I pulled out some Doodlebug dp and found this stripe that coordinated beautifully.  I had originally started out with a different sketch, but switched to this one from The House That Stamps Built.  The cs is Bazzill and I used 3 different colors of Swarovskis for bling.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Nutcrafters - spots &/or stripes
Crazy Challenge - animals
Cards in Envy - Birds, A2 size 

Thanks for stopping by!
I think Margaret is back tomorrow, but if not, I will be here!
