Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary Day 7 (Stripes), Day 1 (Recipe Cards), SSS Monday 10/2 (We Love Stamps), SSS Wednesday 12/2 (Get Krafty)

We’re still partying at Papertrey‘s 7th birthday celebrations … the latest card challenge is to use stripes …

PTI 7th Birthday Day 7 & Day 1, SSSM 10-2, SSSW 12-2

This card started out for day 6 … use a large word … but at the time, the light colours weren’t strong enough with the bold greeting and it looked rather wishy washy, so it was left aside.  Today I came back to play with it … and stamped another twice over the original fine lines (Background Basics: Super Stripes), offsetting it each time.  Now, there’s a background colour to each stripe and the fine lines still show through … I quite like the effect.

The colour palette and sketch are from the day 1 recipe cards (see below), so I’m linking there too.  I’m also joining in at Simon Says Stamp Monday‘s We Love Stamps, and at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, where we’ve to Get Krafty … one of the stripes is kraft coloured.

Hope you’re having a wonderful week … if you feel like a giggle and you haven’t done it yet, have a go at Papertrey’s Spring Fling Scavenger Hunt … those bunnies get are hidden everywhere in those photo’s!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂
