The vertical lines and color palette were bouncing around in my head and finally melded to create this card.
Yes, I know both inspirations have stick straight vertical lines in them, but my vision included using the Ribbon Candy Border from Memory Box. This is a die that I bought because I saw it in a local store and Memory Box dies tend to go fast - it wasn't one I was looking for or familiar with and it has sat unused and unloved for too long.
Technically, I used the leftover pieces from the die cut to create the lines of vertical streamers backing the sentiment banner. I worked in quadrants, picking the color and length of the top left pieces first and adhering them to a scrap of paper narrower than the banner. I repeated this for each of the other quadrants and, in a nod to the Tuesday Trigger, made sure the colors did not flow from top to bottom.
Since Anything Goes at Seize the Birthday this week, I am also linking my card up there. It is safe to say I did not go for the optional Topping to make a monochromatic card!
Thanks for stopping by,
