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:

Card Concept 34

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?

  1. 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.

  6. 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!
