Show Us Stripes

This week our challenge to you at Phindy's Place is to create a card or other paper-crafted project and SHOW US STRIPES SOMEWHERE.

You don't have to use a Phindy image but I encourage you to do so because can enter your project twice if you do.  Besides, Phindy has the most fabulous array of images in her store and  they are so versatile.

I loved this paper with its floral stripes and decided it would be more fun than just straight lines.  The letters were cut with my Cricut and I added some tiny pearls to make them look like they were each hanging by the corner.  I have a couple of friends that could use a little cheering up so I will be getting this in the mail to one of them today.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Squigglefly  - Blue/Green
Crazy Challenge - Spots and Stripes
Creative Card Crew  - Anything Goes
