...the power of two.



Stripes, I love them...polkas too but I've been having fun making my own stripe paper border:

cardstock:  stampin' up night of navy/calypso coral, recollections/110/white  stamps:  stampin' up yippee-skippee/gorgeous grunge  ink:  fresh ink pumpkin/navy other:  mama elephant creative cuts/tag, stampin' up baked brown sugar twine


The horizontal stripes are made by using 0.5 inch strips of Stampin' Up Calypso Coral & Night of Navy.  The sentiment is from the retired, Yippee-Skippee set <-- this set is so fun:



I also inked up Gorgeous Grunge.  I had to contain myself and not add 2 lattes to the card:)  This is an anniversary card.

I was inspired by Colour Me:




Hope you're having an awesome week!
