Hooked on stripes.

There are a few things I am having a hard time with right now.  I say hard time and I mean like hard time quitting.  You may not see it here on my blog, but in my craft room there are lots of things going on.  One...coral and gray. I can't quit. I said it on Facebook the other day to try to help this issue I have but it hasn't stopped.  I love these colors. That being said, the card today is not Coral and Gray, but it is the other thing I am sorta hooked on.  Stripes.  I want to stamp a stripe or 2 on all the cards I am making right now.  Here is today's card...

I got the inspiration for this card from of all things....an envelope.  CAS.  Lots of white space.  And some stripes.  I stamped them on the base and then cut the top layer so that the striped would be peaking out.  I used a sentiment from PTI's Mini Blooms and a heart die cut from PTI, as well. The stripes are from Clear and Simples Designer Lines.

I have some more Neat and Tangled stripes coming up tomorrow!  :)  And maybe a little Coral and Gray to go along!  Hope you have a great day!

  13. I'm so with you on stripes and these, along with this unique design are, well, enveloping! I think Runway Inspired Challenge should dress a model after your card!
