Daring Cardmakers - Deckchair stripes and sunny spots

Hello everyone and welcome to another fun challenge from the team at Daring Cardmakers.

I am so sorry that I didn't join in last weeks challenge, I was so busy revising for my exams and it was the start of the summer holidays, family life just got in the way.

Kathy is our lovely host this week and would like to see stripes, spots or both on your creations this week.

I went with stripes for my card.  I have created a very simple card with just a few stripes down the side using some designer series paper.  I think this came from the Honey Bee paper which is now retired from Stampin Up.

I have added a stamped greeting background and a simple red poppy using the Peacful Moments Bundle

I stamped the happy birthday to create the background in black and grey, sort of randomly on part of the card.

I also added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.

I love how clean and simple this card is with just a pop of colour.

Thanks for stopping by and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting.


  1. Such a lovely card Dawn, I love the black and white with the splash of colour. I hope life is feeling a little calmer this week and you get some time to relax.
