CANDY STRIPES.....DARING CARDMAKERS DARE

Not quite so late with this one, and I got the chance to use my first Magnolia stamp which I recently won on ebay. Here is the challenge.........

'I love the stripey candy sticks that are around at this time of year so inspired by this I challenge you all to create a card featuring stripes of some kind, the occasion is up to you but you must use some form of stripes on your card. Maybe stamps, or paper, or ribbon...'

The paper is 'Paper Adventures Valentine Stripe' and the hearts are glazed. I cut the frame and the hearts with my Bigshot with new dies I got in the fantastic sale (bought so many that my Bigshot has a new lease of life!). I coloured Tilda using watercolour pencils and waterbrush and used basic Dymo tape for the greeting. I must get some watercolour pencils in paler colours next time I am craft shopping.
