February Card Challenge -- Winner!

Post by wimom » Thu Jan 31, 2019 3:54 pm

And the winner is No. 11, Scrappinmom99. I will send your $5 gift certificate in a bit!  I especially enjoyed hearing from those who remembered this paper and thought it might still be in their stash, too! So I'm also sending a second $5 gift certificate to Traveler, who fruitlessly searched her stash for this paper but did find remnants of the collection to use! Thanks to all for playing along.
---------

This patterned paper has been in my stash for years! It's from an old Provo Craft Slab by Christina Cole. I love the colors and kind of messy black between the stripes; I don't know why it took me so long to use it! Your challenge for this month is to create a card -- any kind -- that uses this paper for inspiration. Some possibilities:
-- Pull from the color pallette -- there is a nice combination of pinks and reds if a Valentine's Day card is in your plans. 
-- Use some diagonal stripes.
-- Maybe include a rainbow on your card!
However you are inspired, please include that with your entry.
Here is the paper:

And here is my sample:

I also used the scraps on the inside and back:
ImageImage
So the rules: Must be a new, paper card (no digi). Post to this thread by 11:59 p.m. Feb. 28, and please include how you were inspired by the paper sample. One entry per person. You may combine with one other February Challenge or 15/30 Challenge if it allows. A $5 ACOT gift card will go to one Cherry! Please ask if you have any questions.

I remember that paper, and also loved it. (There was less choice back then I guess).
I think I have a bit left although I doubt I can find it. Great challenge.

Love the bold colors, and always like stripes!  Cute card!

I really like the diagonal stripe look.  But had no idea what a pain it would be to cut a 7x10 piece of pp out of horizontal stripes to look diagonal.  lol   And no sunshine here for a couple days so pic is a bit darker than actual pp's.

I found some scraps from that collection, but, sadly, that particular paper is entirely gone. I may use the scraps, I also have some similar diagonal stripe paper I can use.

Here is my card:

I was inspired to look for that paper, but I no longer have any. I do have scraps from that collection which I found and this is made from 2 of those papers.

Combined with the manufacturer challenge.

I didn't have any diagonal stripe paperin the right colors in my stash, but I had a straight stripe. So I just turned it 90 degrees and cut my card front on the slant. I really liked the bold colors in the stripe, and it went perfectly with the new elephant stamp I had just purchased! An added benefit: He has trim on his ears that I colored to match the papers! Fun challenge!

I think I still have this paper, too! I like how the pattern kind of looks like the bursts on the end of sparklers in the drinks!

I used stripes on the background paper and pulled red from the color palette for my card.
