Stitched Stripes and Flower Thanks

Back with my second post of the day.  (Click here for my first post.)

This card is loosely based on the current sketch for STAMPlorations, which closes tonight, so if you were planning to play along, get your skates on!  And if you incorporate stitching (real or stamped) you've got a twofer because you can enter it into the monthly challenge.

I'm entering it into Keep It Simple where the challenge is tropical.  I went for tropical colours - Bahama Blue, Summer Sky, New Sprout, Canteloupe and er, Dandelion (are there dandelions in the tropics?).

Because I've got green in there, I'm also entering it into Simply Create Too where the theme is St Patrick's Day or Use Green.
And at One Layer Simplicity the theme this month is repeat stamping.

  4. I love the tropical colors, Shirley! The green and yellows made me think of mangoes and my mouth started watering! :o)

  5. You have chosen such pretty colours and created a wonderful design. I am amazed at how many of the challenge entries this time look like they are more than one layer. So very clever.
