African Music Duo!

Good Wednesday morning all!
A quick post today!  I've made this cultural card as part of a set of 6 I've put together for a silent auction donation of a local charity I volunteer for, Acceso International. We have our annual "Sounds & Tastes of the Americas" fundraiser and a big component of the evening is a silent & live auction.  I've always made and donated a couple of sets of my cards and they always seem to sell well.  This card is pretty straight forward  - the zebra design is a Stamp Barn stamp which I've used as a a background.  The African duo is a stamp I got years ago - I don't even remember the name of the company (sorry!).  I added a splash of red behind the image to pop it out.  And wow, no prima flowers on this card, lol!!  I did a little raffia 'thing' instead!  Clear dewdrops on the other corners finish this card off.
Thanks for stopping by today and leaving your beautiful comments!  Hope you all have a fabulous day.
