Yay, it's time for another awesome challenge!! This time we are creating with stripes. Stripes can sound boring until you take a peak at the scrumptious images (and pattern paper) that Embellish Magazine has so graciously provided for us and if that's not enough to get your creativity flowing wait till you see what the design team has come up with :)
Aren't these just gorgeous (colors and all)?!?
Okay. Now for my take on this challenge. The moment I saw the images I knew I wanted the stripes to be the focal point of my card. If you are acquainted at all with my style then you'll know that this for me was a difficult task because I am not used to creating with pattern paper. I shy away from adding *too* much embellishments to my cards, not because I don't like it but because it is not my forte. With all that being said here's my take on this challenge.
To create my pattern paper I used Faux Ribbon stamp set (Papertrey Ink). Then I stamped the image and sentiment (I used a pop up foam for the image). To finish it off I added a rhinestone and a scalloped border to balance all the edges.
I think over all it was a fun challenge. I hope you were inspired to create something for someone today :)
