Birthday wishes


My second card for today is for Papertrey's Birthday celebration.  They want us to use stripes on our card.  I used the long, skinny stamp from Watercolor Wonder to stamp my stripes.  I am following the sketch over at Retro sketches and the Cue word at CASology: Bold.

I found some cool foil paper at Wal-mart yesterday and thought it added a bold statement to the subtle colors.  Sorry for the photo.  The paper really is shiny in real life.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Soft Stone, White
Ink:  Soft Stone, Versafine black
Stamps:  Basic Banners (Wplus9), Watercolor Wonder (PTI)
Accessories:  Starburst framelits, Star punch, Banner trio die, rhinestones, foil paper
