Hello Stampers ~ today I have some stripes for you!

I am headed to the Scrappin' for Soldiers event today.  I will be spending the day crafting!  I have my album with me that I need to work on but I also grabbed a few other items in case I get the album finished or I need a mental break from the planning.  I am looking forward to this as I have not done something like this in quite a while.

I played with the color challenge at Color Throwdown    

These colors were a challenge for me in trying to get them figured out how I was going to use them.  I decided to use the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink Challenge blog to go along with the colors.

I pulled out my Petite Petals stamp set and matching punch.  I stamped the flowers on the card stock with matching ink.  I then used the punch to punch them out.  I laid them on my card to get an idea what I wanted it to look like.  When I was happy with the placement, I used glue dots and stampin' dimensionals to attach them to my card.  I then stamped and punched my sentiment.  I still needed to address the flower in the sketch.  I went looking at my stamp sets and found the dragonfly in Awesomely Artistic.  I stamped it and used the Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle.  Here is my final creation.

Thanks for visiting me today.  What plans do you have for today?  I hope it includes something creative!  Have a Super Saturday and pull out your stripes and show us what you can do!

Robbie the flowers and dragonfly make a really charming colourful focal point for your card especially contrasted against those bright yellow stripes. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
