365 Cards - #111 Say It With Stripes

First things first - Over at 365 Cards today the challenge was to say it with stripes and we had to make a card using bold colours and stripes. This was the brightest stripes I had anywhere in my stash. . .sad but true!! It is a SU paper. The image is from my Cricut - Storybook cartridge as is the butterflies. The cardstock used in the image is Whisper White but I used Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick to colour the background oval and then spritzed it with water which is quite a cool effect. I also used Scattered Straw around the edges of the striped paper.

The sentiment is a little crooked but it was the last thing I did so I was not ditching it but it bugs me a lot that it is crooked lol. Not my normal type of card that I like to create but it is going to have to do today. I didn't do my card last night. . . too tired so I finished it off this morning.

This is my first Post It Organiser that I made but check the pen out. . . it matches!!!

These are the four I completed now. I really like the pink one lol. I should be making more for the markets tomorrow!! That's it until this afternoon. Please enjoy.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Wow - love your card, and don't you hate it when the sentiment goes on crooked - I always do that - I can't even draw a straight line with a ruler - LOL.
OK - so I love your Post-It Note Holders - how did you get the pen to match - what type of pen did you use?
I posted my email address on your last 365 Card entry.
Hugs
