Stripes challenge

Happy Friday!!!  This week's challenge at StampNation was to use stripes.  I will be adding this card to the challenge thread even though I have already made a card as a DT member.  This card is completely different than the one that I made for the challenge. 

For this card, I followed the sketch at Viva la Verve:

I love the colors in the Winter Frost DSP by SU!  It has silver stripes that are beautiful in person.  I used the new silver foil paper to layer behind the circle using the starburst framelits.  The sentiment comes from the Verve set Merry & Bright.

Here is the sneak peek of the DT members cards for the Stripes Challenge at StampNation:

  1. This is beautiful. I nearly bought some of that SU paper because I love the colors and patterns so much. I love that foil medallion you used behind your sentiment. Stunning!

  2. This is lovely, Kristie. That silver frame really accents the circle.

  3. Yes...the SU paper is gorgeous! I sometimes find the SU dp to be a bit bland (lacking vibrancy) but this one is beautiful! The silver medallion is the perfect way to showcase the 'flurry' of snowflakes!

    -40C with the windchill for tonight....did someone say spring???? At the rate we are going it will be July before we hit anything remotely close to spring temps!
