Embellish Stripes Color Challenge

Hey everybody! I am here today to share a card that is NOT a Valentine card! Can you believe it? I can't! I have been making so many Valentine cards for St. Jude's, that it was nice to take a break from that today! It has been an Amazing experience doing this card drive! God has Blessed it SO much! I have had several people tell me, that I have inspired them to start their own card drive for Children's hospitals! How great it that?! So if you have ever thought about doing it and you are too nervous to step out and do it, I say go for it! With Christ all things are possible, and I know, that this one was a success because of Him! I still have been receiving lots of cards everyday! My kids are still not tired of checking the mail! To see their faces light up when they walk out of the Post Office, with their arms full, is so sweet! :) So thank ya'll for Blessing my heart, with your generosity! Saturday will be the last day to collect cards, and I will do the drawing soon after that. I have posted more prizes today, so go here to check those out. And I will have some more prizes added soon!

Ok, on to the card! I made this card for the Embellish Stripes Color Challenge. I saw the challenge last week and have wanted to play ever since, but SO many projects have kept me from doing it! So today was the last day and I was determined to play, because I love the colors and the idea to use stripes! I have had this idea in my head all week and I needed a card for a sweet friend, who has been on my heart for awhile. So here is what I came up with.

Supplies:
Cardstock- (PTI) plum pudding & dark chocolate, (Paper reflections) kraft & cream
Stamps- (Stampendous!) Happy Messages- sentiment, (Inkadinkado) butterfly
Ink- (SU!) close to cocoa
Other- (Fiskars) scalloped sentiment, (Best Occasions) rhinestones
Well I am off to get more projects finished! :)
Have a Blessed day!

gorgeous work winter!!! Love the butterfly!

Can't believe those are paper stripes! So very...classical. So neat how it is perfect for a man with those bold stripes yet feminine enough for a gal with the butterfly and bling.
