I got stripes


Morning all - did my card wake up your eyes this morning lol! Do not adjust your set there are stripes on this card. Wooo a little snazzy number for you today using an upcoming mini background stamp called solid stripes. I was using it on another project and noticed the paper left behind after I had stamped the die cut flowers and loved it.

The inspiration for the colours I had from a shirt and tie combo I saw in a shop window while in London a couple of weeks ago. So my tidbit for today is look at the pieces you would chuck away - just maybe they were what you were looking for in the first place.

Have a great day & see you Monday - hope you can join me as I may have some bloggaverssary candy on offer!!!
