Digital Tuesday #68 DT Card

Morning everyone, before I let you know about my card I want to thank you all for your concern and caring since I have not been around, your good wishes are held close to my heart.  I am having a battle at the moment but I know I will win eventually even though it will be a short lived victory.  

Today is the start of a new challenge at Digital Tuesday and this week it was my turn to choose the theme so I chose 
Happy Birthday
we all need a nice stash of birthday cards for family, friends and the unexpected request also it is my birthday week, I know there are others, plus friends/fellow DTM, celebrating this occasion as well so for everyone whose birthday week it is I am sending you all big hugs and best wishes.

Our sponsor this week is the lovely and very talented Teri of Delicious Doodles, the winner will receive four digi images.  



For my card I have used one of Teri's images called Retro Zebra and he is just the cutest ever.
I have used a mixture of papers, I really wanted the image to stand out but also wanted to keep it to a black and white theme with just a hint of yellow.
I printed then cut the Zebra out and mounted him with silicone glue, I added the butterflies and the yellow scallop which I felt was a symbol of the sunshine, the sentiment is Serendipity stamped with Momento ink.

I hope you will join us this week and please visit the other DT their work is beautiful.

Hugs to all.

So sorry to hear you're battling something at the moment. Hope you get it beaten very soon.

This card is so very striking - the black and white start the effect, but the stand-alone image of the zebra just completes the effect perfectly. Gorgeous!
