There are some big birthday and anniversary celebrations going on in blogland at the moment … and I’m sharing in the festivities for a couple of them with this card …
A very Happy 3rd Birthday to the ladies at Less is More … we’re celebrating with rainbows! LIM was the first regular challenge I played along with … it was, and remains, an encouraging, creative and inspiring place to visit … thanks to Chrissie, Mandi (at the time) and now Jen, who work tirelessly to bring us great themes, fabulous cards, encouraging comments and a wonderful LIMette community. Thanks so much ladies … I really appreciate all your hard work!
This week, there are also 4th birthday celebrations going on at WPlus9, where Dawn’s planned a whole month of fun … this week we’re staying in our ‘Comfort Zone’ … mine’s Clean and Simple. As this is a one layer card, I’m also joining in with One Layer Simplicity, where Heather is our host this month and our theme is Can You Repeat That? The sequins are a new acquisition (from Neat & Tangled), so I also get to link up with the new monthly challenge at Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday.
Over the last few months, I’ve seen some brilliant striped cards out in the blogosphere … from the amazing Laura Bassen, Cristina Kowalczyk and Dawn Woleslagle, among others … so I guess this is a CASE of many different cards, all rolled into one. I measured and pencil-marked my card base, stamped the Papertrey Ink stripe in mainly Memento inks, added the WPlus9 sentiment and scattered some matching N&T sequins over it. The sequins started off in a line down the left side of each stripe … being a neat freak, I liked it … but it wasn’t quite celebratory enough, so I threw caution and the sequins to the wind and scattered them. There still kind of neat and tidy enough to keep me happy!
I may be back with another card later … using up what was rescue-able from the stamping
disasters fun I had with this one! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight! Anita 🙂
ETA: Mr Linky closed the door early at WPlus9, so I’ll play along there next time!
