Thank you card Papertrey Ink



Hello everyone,



I hope you are having a great weekend. We've been moving our daughter into a new flat so it has been rather hectic but as today is PTI Blog Hop day, I'd like to share a card I made. There was an inspiration picture again and this time the theme was colourful stripes


I needed to make a thank you card so I took the opportunity to use stripes on it. I cut the stars with the Seeing Stars dies, and then cut the large star into strips and colored them with Copic markers as per the colours in the inspiration picture. I reassembled the strips as the focal point and ran the smaller star through a star embossing folder.



The sentiments were from Star Prints and Think Big Favourites, and I softly inked the white card with some Hawaian Shores ink to take some of the stark white away. Some HS ribbon, a gem for some bling and a couple of aqua mist buttons finished the card off.

When I first saw the inspiration picture, I thought of making a rainbow card but as I posted one a couple of weeks ago, it was too late to use it here. However, here is another peep at it in case you mised it.


I'm going to enter the star card into this weeks Simons Says challenge which is to use dies.

Thanks for looking in and enjoy all the blog stops today.
Hugs
