Violet, GDT Crafts and Me

Hi everyone! I'm excited to be playing along with the talented ladies at Crafts and Me Challenges again today! For this week's project we were challenged to create a card with stripes. The bold, bright colors in this patterned paper really inspired my coloring of this image. The beautiful Violet is a digital stamp by Crafts and Me.

My card base is Dark Brown layered with White Cardstock then patterned paper with a zig zag stitch around the edge. The shadow strip is Buckaroo Blue layered on Dark Brown with white satin ribbon wrapped around and taped down on the back side. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers then layered on Dark Brown. To embellish the card I added a bow made with white satin ribbon and blue rhinestones in each corner of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
