Lime Green and Purple with Stripes
Simon Says Stamp's challenge this week is to use stripes. For Summer of Color week 3, we are to use lime green and purple. So, I made this birthday card to enter in both challenges. The card base and ribbon are limeade ice from Papertrey Ink and the piece with the chevron arrows was done by sponging paint through a Crafter's Workshop stencil. The mat is a deep purple color. So there's my purple and lime green.
I used a piece of striped patterned paper from Fancy Pants for the scalloped circle. Image is Hampton Arts for Graphic 45 from the Secret Garden collection. I lightly colored the bird with chalks and pencils. Finally, the sentiment is from Pink by Design and the dies are all Spellbinders.
I really like how this card turned out and it's always good to have birthday cards of hand.
