A Dazzle of Zebras at CCM

Afternoon Everyone,
It is my turn to host the new challenge over at CCM 
Our theme this time is Animal Magic.
We would love to see your creations based on an animal theme. Please make sure that your project has an animal large enough for us to see, we are excluding insects in this one, so no bugs, butterflies, bees etc. will count as animals. Your project may still have them, but not as the animal, so you will need to add something other than an insect to meet the challenge theme. 
My card uses a fabulous stamp with a group of zebras.
I have found various collective nouns for a group of zebras including herd, zeal and dazzle, so you see card making can improve your general knowledge as well!
I stamped and embossed the image onto a piece of glossy card stock which had been brayered with a multicoloured die based ink pad.
The side of the card has been embellished with another stamped and embossed image along with a rather tribal looking button and some threads.
I have to confess that the card was actually made over 10 years ago when I was lucky enough to be asked by Search Press to write a book on Rubber Stamping, and sad that I am I still have all the cards from the book in a drawer as I can't bare to part with them.
I hope that you will be able to join us at CCM for my challenge and that you will visit the rest of the team to see what they have made to inspire you.
Have a wonderful week.
Happy Crafting and Hugs
