Stampin' Celebration #55

Well if it isn't one thing, it's another. However this one came a bit unexpected. I had eye surgery a few weeks ago but wasn't completely aware of all the side effects that would occur after the surgery until I was sitting in the office reading some final paper work before the surgery. lol! I knew I would be overly sensitive to light but it has been a bit ridiculous. Now this other side effect is a side effect that only happens to people 35 and older. Well I figured I am just 35 so it probably won't effect me. Yeah right. Not only could I now not see far away but my vision up close was messed up too. So let's just say lately I have spent more time with my eyes closed during the day then open. On a good note, I can say that I see a slight improvement every day. That said I have finally been able to get some crafting done and I can stand to look at a computer again for a short period of time.
I just loved the Stampin' Celebration's challenge for this month. I love black, white and pink. I am super late getting this out but I just had to play along.
I was having a hard time finding something I could replicate the zebra stripes with when I remembered a card I made a few years ago. It was a real favourite of mine and the background reminded me of these inspiration photos. It is the rose stamp from Fifth Avenue Floral.
I sure hope you get a chance to play along. Here is the list of blogs from the Design Team. Make sure you check out their great samples!

So sorry to hear about your eyes! I hope you are feeling better soon.

I absolutley love your card--gorgeous! The sparkle adds so much and you did a great job capturing it in the photo. Thanks for playing along with Stampin' Celebration!

I love how you made the flowers represent the zebra print and all the shimmer on your card! I would think your eyes would be so hard not to be able to use! Hope you are recovering quick!
