~~ Cutie Pie Challenge #131

Hi everyone,
Hope all is well.

Today starts the first challenge of the year at 
where we have a "Cute, Clean and Simple"  theme.

I've had this cute Spring Zebra digi for a few years and decided it was time to colour it up.
I loved making it clean and simple...no design paper or elements to 
distract from the image.  The sentiment was printed using Word.
Digital image is by Crissy Armstrong at Whimsy Stamps.


Inside sentiment created in Word
