So Dawn has done it again!! Gave this great challenge out to play along again this week.
Took me a little bit to figure out what I was going to do, but I knew I needed a birthday card for my friend Sally (though I'm a wee bit late!) so off I went.
I decided to use the photo as a sort of inspiration piece as well:
I liked the stripes, but made them less uniform. I basically found some scrap pieces of the colors and cut them into strips of varying widths. I cut a piece of vintage cream to 4 x 5.25, and used a sheet of terrifically tacky tape and covered the whole piece. Then I laid different strips of CS, leaving some space open. Once I got all of the cs strips on, I covered the whole thing with micro beads...gives a little texture and subtle sparkle.
with such a 'busy' background, I didn't want to overdo the whole card, so just simply added the sentiment from Damask Designs, and a flower, and we're done!
Hope you all had a great weekend...why is it they always go so fast????
Thanks for stopping by!!
