Embellish it with stripes!

Happy Wednesday! Half way through the week already! Today I thought I would share a card I have made for the current challenge over on Embellish Magazine Blog.

I'm in such need of 'Thank you' cards at the moment so that was my starting theme. I really like the Horizontal Lines Cling stamp from Hero Arts so I had to use that again and so I over stamped the leaf pattern like I did in the card HERE. Really like the effect!

The only thing that bothers me about the card is the sentiment is a little wonky! I didn't realise this until I had put the card together! Oh well!

I added some purple gems for a little bling to the over stamped leaf and to the centre of the paper flowers.

CS: PTI Kraft, SU! Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip, PTI Vintage Cream
Stamps: Hero Arts Horizontal Lines CG143, PTI Turning a New Leaf & Signature Greetings
Accessories: Purple Gems, PTI Plum Pudding Topnotch Twill, Prima Got Flowers, foam pads.

Well, I am back to work tonight :( after my 12 days off. Plus I am going to be busy this weekend doing degree work! Oh so much to do but so little time! I found time today to squeeze in a card for the current Hero Arts Challenge and it also fits in with the New Challenge over on CAARDVARKS! I'll share the card tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous take on the challenge! I never noticed the sentiment is wonky, I think it's because you've embellished it beautifully and that steal my eye ;D
