Less is More...week 67

One layer use 3 stamps is the challenge over at Less is more this week.
I have struggled to make this card as I have an eye infection and have a constant weepy and blurred eye but at least I've done the challenge!
My 3 stamps I have used are, the postage frame and the image are from Judikins the sentiment is from Stampendous.  Stamped the frame then sponged colour using fluid chalks before stamping the Zebra's from the African cube stamp.
Our Careers day went really well but there were certainly a lot more young careers there this year than last year. But the ladies and gentlemen who joined our crafting class all went home with a completed card and a box to keep a packet of tissues in.

I certainly do hope your eye is better. Your card is really wonderful Anne. I have no idea what fluid chalks are but the coloring on this fantastic. Really nice card. With you being there and me being here, I really do not understand Careers Day. But it would seem you had a lot of young people and made cards. I am so glad it was successful! Now take good care of that eye!!
