Card Concept

When I saw the Card Concept inspiration for this week, I knew I would be playing - I love a mix of stripes and florals, and I have been wanting to have a play again with my Vintage Roses stamps.  Here's what I made:


supplies: MFT Stripes stencil, tumbled glass distress ink, Altenew Vintage Roses, Simon's Best Mom Ever sentiment, Echo Park Bundle of Joy Dots & Stripes paper strip, EKSuccess scalloped border punch, moonshine sequins

The combination of the stripes, dots and flowers is so pretty!  I stencilled my stripes, then stamped and fussy-cut my spray of roses.  I added a punched dotty strip and my sentiment, and some sequins for a little sparkle.  I'm guessing my card would be considered Clean and Layered.

Isn't this inspiration amazing?

Ooh, I love your new header photo! Is this sweet little nest in your own back yard?

Nice stripes and florals on your card, too! I never thought about it, but that is a nice combo.

Love those roses with the stripes Lin, wonderful MD card. Your new header picture of those robins eggs (guessing) is so sweet.

Lin, this card is so "you" in so many ways - so dear. I have that set of roses, but am a bit intimidated so I haven't inked it yet. You may just be my inspiration!
