A Stripe-tastic Challenge

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by. I hope you all had a great Christmas and that you can find a little time to do some stamping now that most of the festivities are over.
I found this Stripe-tastic challenge over on the Moxie Fab World blog and wanted to play along since I love stripes.
I'm using dp and chipboard from Pink Paislee and the colors of this card are much prettier IRL than my photo. The card base and top panel look grey, but they're actually Cool Caribbean card stock. I used a Sizzix embossing folder to add a little texture to the striped panel, and then used a clear spica glitter pen to add a little interest inside those tiny grooves. I added some PTI plum pudding ribbon and ink for the SU! sentiment and this card was done. I wanted to mention also that this fabulous dp by Pink Paislee called Vintage Vogue was a prize I won on the MoxieFab blog back on world card making day. The papers and embellishments are gorgeous, and you can see the true colors of the dp I used by clicking here.
I'll have a few more thank-you cards to share with you in the coming days, but that's it for me today.  Make it a great day!

And here is the trigger photo for the Stripe-tastic challenge.

Wow! Carol, your colors are splendid and I love the stripes. As much as I love Christmas cards, it is nice to see something a bit different.

My visitors are still here so I'm staying out of the craft room. Look forward to using some new crafting supplies I got, though.
