It's a jungle out there

Today's card was made for MFTMFC13 on scs, for this challenge we had to use new stamps that had not seen any ink. This was easy to do as I have a few of them, the particular set I have used I have been saving for just the right DP. I purchase the ribbon some time ago, thinking it looked just like a zebra. The other day a shopping I found this paper stack at my local Kmart store, it was just perfect. It has several rows of zebras with one row in foil.
Stamps: It's a jungle out there - MFT
Card:Black, white, old olive, DP Silhouette foil & glitter cs - Cre8tive

Some Bunny

Yeah, My new stamps have arrived and what better time to use them than a sketch challenge. This is the first time that I have ordered My Favorite Things stamps from overseas, when my friend told me that my long wanted set winter blast was in the bubble bin, I just had to give it a go. Not that I have used the set today as I just had to order some others that were on the wish list also.
Todays sketch is MFTSC96 over in MFT stamps member forum of SCS. I went with strawberry, chocolate and vanilla colour theme. I also added paper piercing to the corner of my image and to the top of my card.
Stamps: Chocolate Bunny - MFT
Card: DP - Bella Rose, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Other: Nestibilites, brads, copics, scallop border punch, ds tape, paper piercing mat & tool.
