Simple Elegant Stripes-SCIC10


It's week 10 over at the Stampin' Celebration blog! And this week we are inspired by this elegant collection of photos. Be sure to check out the other design team members projects while you are there!



Here is what I came up with, A simple clean lined card! I got my inspiration from the cake. I cut out different sized strips of Basic Black and So Saffron card stocks and adhered them on to a Whisper White card base. I then die cut the flowers using the retired Flower Layers die...(which I am going to miss so much!!!) and my Big Shot and crumpled them up in my hand to give them more texture.

I used a small Clear Rhinestone brad in the middle to hold them together. I Sprayed the layered flower with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz (do not know if you can see that in this picture or not??) to give it a little more "bling". I finished off the card by adding the sentiment from a retired stamp set across the So Saffron card stock.

Feel inspired by my card and/or the inspiration photos above? If so show us what you got by participating in this weeks challenge over at the Stampin' celebration blog!

Thanks for looking!
