Seize the Birthday Challenge #220 - Stripes

Hello and welcome to another fun challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

Vicki is our host for this challenge and she has chosen stripes.  But if you want to enter and not use the toppings, just make sure it is a birthday card. 

Here is the card I did for this theme. 

I decided to put my stripes in the background for this card. Here are the supplies that I used.
Die Namics - Striped sentiment strip die
The Greetery  - Botani Cuts Tulips
Simons says Stamps - Sentiment, Brush Script. 
Design paper from my stash

We have a new Surprise Party Guest for the next couple of months.
She is Jenny Martin and you can find her creations HERE

Be sure to check out the rest of the team too. 

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments! 


  1. Beautiful. I love your pretty tulips and how you cut the stripe die cut from pattern paper. That big sentiment looks great in the black over the pattern paper.

  2. Gorgeous! So soft and beautiful. Great idea for the striped background and I like the vellum mat on the sentiment.

  9. I love the soft hues of this card, Barb! Great way to do stripes too!

  10. What a SWEET little card, I love it. Aren't layered die cut flowers fun? I have a few and always enjoy using them. Your colors are perfect here and using that patterned paper for the die cut background is GENIUS!! I would not have thought of that. Well done, my friend.
