I saw the Embellish Magazine Color Trends Challenge over at their blog and just loved the DT sample cards. I wanted in on all of the fun. I've been making a lot over the weekend. I was hoping that my Papertrey Ink order would arrive by today, but it hasn't. Darn. Oh well.
Anyway, here's the lovely color combination for the challenge. Embellish Magazine: Color Trends Challenge - Stripes.
Here's my sample for this challenge. I wanted to combine some CAS elements and shabby chic into my card. I don't know if you can see it...but here it is. :)
I stamped some flowers from Celebrating You (The Craft's Meow) up top. I didn't color it to keep it simple and clean. Then I stamped some stripes on the bottom part of the panel using Background Basics: Retro from Papertrey Ink. I'm loving the effect of the small, clean lines that background stamp produced.
I used Rescue Remedies from Waltzingmouse Stamps for the label. Then I added the flower, button and ribbon for my embellishments.
