The simplicity of these gray stripes paired with cream and orange flowers just speaks volumes in regards to card inspiration.  Take these colors and transform them into a classic card that captures the beauty of the photo.  Experiment with stamped flowers or die-cut florals.  Add stripes using delicate Sheer Basics striped vellum overlays or cover plates.  Let the photograph speak to you and see where it takes you!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

Random-numbers

Anna

Anna Kossakovskaya used the Cover Plate: Peony die to layer this delicate floral over the stripes.  The bright dots of green help to give the card a modern feel. Such a great design!

Maureen

Maureen P. made a bouquet with just a pop or two of orange.  The scattered enamel dots help keep things from being too structured.  Using a floral stamp that incorporates a sentiment already was a clever move to help keep things clean and simple!

Barbara

Barb Kirkwood created a lovely felt floral focal point to frame her sentiment.  I love the way she integrated the sentiment using vellum so that the stripes of the background could still peek through.

Congratulations to the winners!  Please send an email to customer service and provide them with your full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to.  Thank you to everyone for playing along!
