Here is my take!

This is Safari Riley and I think he is a hoot to work with!
I just love animal prints but am always at a loss as to where
and how to use them.  This zebra print started as a file
folder from the Michaels Dollar bin.  Then I used some Black
Magic Coredinations paper embossed with the Herringbone
Cuttlebug embossing folder.
This is one of the neatest embossing folders and creates
such a wondeful texture. I just flipped the paper to the
backside for the small strip.

I made my own embellishments by adding buttons then
trimming the prongs off copper brads. 
I attached with glue dots but next time I would use
jewelry glue!  They wobble a bit.  LOL!

Coloring was done with Copics.
Thanks for looking and be sure and visit the other
Design Team members via the links to the right.
