Striped and Floral Thank You...Just Us Girls Challenge #436~Trend Week: Black and White Stripes

Hello,

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #436~TrendWeek, where our wonderful Lisa has selected BLACK and WHITE STRIPES as our inspiration! Talk about a fabulous trend, right?!


If you've come from - or are heading to - the challenge blog, you'll see an array of fabulous cards from our April Guest Designer, Karren Johnson, and my talented teammates: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria.

My card pairs faux-water-coloured stamped stripes with Spring Bouquet blooms from Studio Katia (swoon!). I love black, white and red...so dramatic!


Turning the stage over to you! 

Looking forward to seeing your BLACK & WHITE STRIPES creations in the gallery!
