Striped Bonanza!

Hi there!  I've got a rather bright and bold card today.  I'm playing along with the challenge at the Colour Throwdown.  I was rather fixated on the stripes in the photo so I decided to create my own.  I started out by trying to stamp them but that didn't go so well (cue lots of bad words!) so I cut strips of patterned paper and layered them instead.  The Papertrey Ink sentiment fit perfectly in the white space and the flower pretty much made itself!  Hope you've all had a lovely day!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Big & Bold Wishes) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Nesties Labels 14) Spellbinders
Dies:  (Beautiful Blooms II #1, #2 & #3) Papertrey Ink
Punches:  (5/16" & 1/8" hole punches) McGill

And you craft like I do - bad words flying everywhere ;) Love the dimension that layering the strips gives - fussy but sooo worth it :)
