Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary Challenge: Stripes




Timer Challenge PTI


Finally I dare to take cardmaking challenge again. This time it is from my favorite paper crafting supplier: Papertrey Ink. They are celebrating their 7th anniversary this year and planning to post creative challenges.

Usually I would use more colorful combination which includes either red, rose or orange. I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, but it turned out to be (in my opinion) a sweet one. Here is the Bouquet Builder I had choosen:
