Pinterest Inspired




Time for a not-for-a-challenge, Pinterest-inspired, just 'cause I felt like it card.

Here's the inspiration:



I cut 1/4 inch wide strips, which should have fit equally across my 4 inch grey panel, but I ended up trimming about 1/16 inch off the two ends somehow. I love the fun bouncy feel of the brightly coloured strips against the grey. I think this will be perfect for my friend's 13 year old niece!

  2. Great-looking, brightly colored card! Like how you used the paper strips. I have similarly used printed papers but not solids. Solids look good! Nice way to add the BIG sentiment, too. :)

  8. Now that I looked at the inspiration picture closer, I see that I made a quilt for my daughter with this same design, different colors. Why didn't I think it would be adaptable to a card?

  9. This looks like the perfect "grown-up" card for a 13 year old girl. She'll love it, I'm sure! I know I do. Love the gray background. And that's a killer font. This is sweetly happy. Love this!! Bev
