DDSB Challenge #54 - Stripes

Very excited today as this is my  first creation for Digi Doodle Shops Best Challenge, #54 Stripes. I have used  the 1920's Vintage Dress stamp which has been paper pieced to match some of the layers on the card and coloured with Promarkers. The paper is from my stash and does not have a name on it - sorry. The sentiment is from a Butterfly Kisses stamp set from their Clear 2 Collage range. I have edged the design with peel-offs to give it an Art Noveau feel!!

Quite a simple card but I felt the image didn't need anything too fussy - I hope you like. I also hope you will go on over to DDSB and take a look at the rest of the new DT's creations - they are fab. While there, why not join in the challenge - we want to see stripes of any kind, the choice is yours - paper, ribbon, stripey animals!! Also, why not become a follower so that you do not miss out on future challenges. If you do become a follower, please leave a comment mentioning that I (Denise) suggested you sign up - thanks.

Do also have a look at the shop - they have some really gorgeous digi stamps and a special offer running at the moment.

Once again, thanks so much for looking and for all the lovely comments you have been leaving me - they really make my day!!
