Remember ...

This is the card I have made for this weeks CD Sunday Challenge - Stripey.  My stripes are embossed on the white panel down the side of my card, I hope this is OK.


The image is from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection and the poppy papers are from her Pamela West Collection.  The embossed stripes were created with my Cuttlebug Candy Cane Stripes embossing folder and I have punched the edge of the panel with a Fiskars edge punch.  I have kept my design quite simple because I did not want to detract from the beautiful Poppy image.

I have decorated the inside of my card with the same papers.
