Celebrating Stripes!

     Who doesn't love stripes!?! And, butterflies with purple diamonds?

     I have two challenges this week involving stripes. CAS-ual Fridays asked that we make CAS cards with strips of color or pattern.  And, the inspiration photo for the Tuesday Trigger Challenge in the Moxie Fab World is covered with multi-colored stripes (photo below).

     Do you have a good idea of your own? There is still time to join in on all the fun. The info for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC61 is here:

     The info for the Tuesday Trigger challenge is  here:


This is the inspiration photo from Moxie Fab World. I was really inspired by the colorful stripes in this trigger. I love working with turquoise so I knew right away I would use that color in my design. I also like the staggered look of the stipes so I incorporated that as well. 
    
     To make my card, I stamped the stripes on a white cardstock base using TPC Studio's Patterned Borders collection with purple, turquoise and orange ink. The stamps are plenty long enough to go all the way across even a larger card, but I wanted to stagger them to match the design I had in mind. I punched that gorgeous, turqoise butterfly with a Martha Stewart punch. The purple gems are from Studio G.
     Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a great day, Pam
