thanks so much...

Hello friends... the party continues at PTI and I have had a chance to make something for today's challenge to use stripes on your card.  I also used one of the sketches and color combos from the first challenge and so will be popping the card into that line up, as well.

It was pretty much a given that I would use my PTI Distressed Stripes set for this challenge.  I have had the set for ages and never really used it.  I have tried, but had never been able to come up with anything I like.  But I do like how this turned out.  I added some Studio Calico wood stars and kraft colored hemp twine to complete the look.  It is clean and simple, but a bit rustic, too.  I must say that while this month's PTI release is a bit overwhelming I am loving pretty much everything they have been showing sneak peeks of.   So wishing I had lots of disposable income that I could spend on everything!!  I used the following color combo and sketch:

 
Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & kraft; Stamps:  PTI Distressed Stripes & Think Big Favorites #1; Ink:  SU! Old Olive, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise & Pool Party; Studio Calico wooden starts; Hempotique kraft twine

WOW...I really LOVE this card, Rosemary! At first, I thought that was patterned paper. Then I looked up the PTI-Distressed Stripes set you mentioned. I don't remember seeing it, when it was released. You've used the colors & sketch SO beautifully! It's one of my favorites by you (How many times have I said that?). The "kraft" always make me look twice.

It's unusual to see a 'rustic' style card from you, but I really love how this card turned out! Your doily is beautiful and the striped papers are fab! Good luck with the challenge...I know the prizes right now are amazing!
