I use stripes (in case you haven't noticed) in almost every project I do. It's usually just a strip so it's not overwhelming. I always choose my striped paper first because that gives me an immediate colour pallet when I'm picking the papers I want to use.
In this one, there's just a small striped strip in the bottom right corner.
So, lets see you earn your stripes this week. I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. Don't forget to link up your project using Mr. Linky below.
It hit me just the other day that I haven't made ANY Christmas cards this year! I usually have them half done by the end of the summer so that I am well-stocked come December. But not so this year. So- here it is- my first Christmas card of 2012- STRIPES included!!
I love stripes and I tend to use them a lot too. I also don't want to give up summer so this layout with the bright colors, reminds me of summer.
