stripe it up

Wow - where did March go?! Hard to believe it's April tomorrow but I am loving the longer days and warmer weather.

Jules picked our Seize the Birthday Challenge this week - stripes!  I love stripes - especially on patterned paper. I have a tendency to accumulate striped paper instead of using it so decided I should make use of some on this card. They suit a slimline card quite well, I think.  I know these are more autumn colours but I quite like these colours together.  

Please be sure to see what Surprise Party Guest Deepti Aggarwal and the rest of the STB team have come up with over on the blog.

Thanks for stopping by and take care.

  1. I like the colors together too and your slimsline card is lovely.

  2. Good use of the striped paper and running them vertical makes this card look soooo tall. Great for a big wish!

  3. I would have purchased that striped paper too! Awesome for a slimline for sure! Great card, Glenda!

  4. Fabulous! I really love that gauzy look over the stripes too.

  5. Yes, your color combo is awesome! The stripes are perfect with the slimline too

  6. Gorgeous!! I love the look of stripes on the slimline, and those looong stemmed flowers. What a charming, gorgeous card! Love it!

  7. This is really beautiful! Love the rich colours and the linen overlay.

  8. Those stripes look awesome as a slimline card, pretty colour combo too, Cathy x

  9. Glenda this is a perfect way to get stripes (which I love the color combos)and that it is masculine!! and add that die cut and it is perfect for a wish big birthday card!

  10. Well done for using some of your hoard, that’s my problem too! Love how you’ve used one of the stripe colours for the stem.
