Using old backing papers

Well i am entering a couple of card making blog challenges with this card and the theme for Simon Says Stamp was something "Old" well i have had the backing papers i used in my stash since i started getting interested in card making a few years ago and just never seemed to use them. I am also entering The Sketchy Challenges blog and i loved their sketch thought it would be fun to combine the two.

I took a 15cm x 15cm card blank in pearlescent white as my base. I then cut a square in black card measuring 13cm x 13cm which i adhered to the card using foam tape. I then cut three pieces of my old backing papers in 8cm x 8cm, 11.5cm x 6.5cm and 5.5cm x 5.5cm. I arranged these on the card to match the sketch and adhered them with double sided tape. I downloaded the zebra digital image and printed on Copic card. I coloured the zebra a light grey just to make him pop a little more and coloured the background roughly as i wanted to have a little texture rather than be flat. I cut out the image and scalloped black circles using dies. I then attached them to the card using double sided foam square so he really pops out at you. it wouldn't be one of my cards without a few gems. Hope you like my finished card
