It's all about STRIPES

Good Morning and welcome to another challenge at The Crafty Pad. This week we want to see

STRIPES

We are sponsored this week by Letraset, with a 5-pack of Promarkers

AND The Crafty Pad Designs, with a choice of 3 digi images :)


The DT have all used one of the new Father's Day images, which are available from The Crafty Pad Designs.

I decided to make a bookmark gift card (using the tutorial from our mid-week post, which you can find HERE.)


The bookmark lifted off the card.

Close up of the card (bookmark removed.) The ticket sentiment is called Bestest Dad ticket and is from TCP shop.

 The bookmark

 Reverse of the bookmark.

 The bookmark 'in use!'

I used Papermania Colossal Paper Pack 'For Him' papers, which I've had for years! The rosette is made using one of the Father's Day images from TCP shop, and grosgrain ribbons. The base/gift card element has been kept simple, as the bookmark is the main focal point.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
So I hope to see you join in with our stripes challenge #124
Please pop over too the challenge blog and take a look at the fab inspiration offered by the DT.....I know you'll be impressed, I sure was!

Thanks for looking!
