Candy stripes

It feels like I haven't done a card dare/challenge for ages while I've been making pressies and I've missed it like the saddo I am. I need to do cards for Mum's birthday so it's a good excuse.

I've used a combination of the DCM candy stripe dare, where any card could be made so long as it had stripes on it, and the Di Hickman December #1 sketch.



The patterned paper is from a K&Co paper pad, which I chose as it had soft stripes on it. The lace, flowers and gem brad are from my stash.

Now it's back to gift making! I'm getting there slowly!

Thanks for looking x

This is such a pretty card, Kaz.

Thanks for the reminder about that K&Co stuff, I've 2 commissioned 80th birthday cards to make and I think this paper would be perfect. If I can find it!

Lovely, so soft and feminine. I missed doing card challenges lately because of everything else going on, so you're not the only one!
