Slimline Card With Zany Zebra Stamp Set

 Don't you just love those cute zebras? They just look like they could get into a lot of mischief!  Slimline cards are popular right now, and I just pictured these fun four-legged creatures running across the front of a loooong card.

The sentiments are from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set.  Love the large font in this set! The Rainbow Glimmer Paper tops it all off! Here's the inside:
