Stripes Color Trends Challenge

**This is my second post for the day!  Scroll down to see my DeNami blog hop project!**

Hey everyone!  I hope you are having a great Sunday!  We are playing inside today as I have a sick little one and some warmer temps outside!  I thought I would sit down while the kids were watching a movie and make a quick challenge card!  I picked the Stripes Color Trends Challenge!  I love the color combo!!

Here is my card...

I cut 3/4" strips of Pure Poppy, Ocean Tides and True black cardstock and attached them to a piece of kraft cardstock.  Then I ran that panel through my big shot with the Linen Impression Plate.  I cut a hole using a Circle Nestie.  After centering that on my kraft base, I traced the circle lightly with pencil and then stamped the compass inside.  I attached the twine and tag to the panel and then adhered it to the card base with foam tape.  Super easy!

Here is a closer shot of the texture!  OH and the little silver pearl for some added detail!

Thanks for stopping by today!



PS.  Peter asked which woodgrain embossing folder I used for my HB card over on the Cards Challenge blog!  That is the Woodgrain Impression plate from PTI!  HTH!
