Zebra Valentine featuring Newton's Nook

Hello Friends!
Hope you are all staying warm where ever you are, It is quite cold and snowy here in Ottawa and is much better being inside card making!
I am sharing a card I made for the Newtons Nook use a heart shape challenge today.

Inky Paws Challenge #17 - Use a Heart Shape | Newton's Nook Designs

I am using the new Wild about Zoo stamp set, that I happened to win by commenting on a blog hop! Was delighted to receive it in the mail yesterday and get stamping! Soo cute, love all the adorable critters in this set and the animal print hearts are my favorite!

I started off with fog cardstock, I stamped the hearts in the background using versafine ink and cut some vellum to put on top. I colored my Zebra with colored pencils on a separate piece of cardstock and cut him out.  I added some red hearts, some random sequins and twine to finish it off.

Hope you enjoyed my cute little Zebra card! Have a lovely rest of your week!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
