My post today is a card sample for MTTC 'spots and stripes' challenge. Some of you will recognise it from samples I did for a recent challenge here on my own blog, i thought it would eb nice to share and let you all know how it was made.
I started off with an A4 piece of card and made it into a stepper card. I used a stripey backing paper to cover the centre panel and across the bottom. I then embossed two small pieces of card to fit the outer panels using a dotty embossing folder. I stamped and coloured my ballerina onto a spellbinders die cut shape. My sentiment is a peeloff placed onto a die cut tag which I used ribbon to attach to my card. To finish I added peeloff corners and gems.

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog, all comments are appreciated x
