Allegro strips...?

Hello!

A quick one tonight. It's late, and I was up super early to get my big girl to her swim meet. Definitely didn't get all the week-end jobs done this week-end!

I did squeeze in making a card this afternoon, as I have yet another birthday coming up this week. :-)
I used SU! Everyday Enchantment paper, PTI Pretty Peonies stamps, SU! ink Cameo Coral and Old Olive. Card base is PTI White and rhinestones are SU!

I made this card for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #61 and Tuesday Trigger: Allegro con Brio over at Moxie Fab World.

CAS-ual Fridays is asking us to use strips of some type on our card.
The Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World is this image.
This image had me stumped all week. I played and played with patterned paper today, and finally came back down to a very simple card using three strips of striped paper, offset from each other to create a bit of interest.

I must get to bed. I'm about to collapse asleep on my computer desk!

Thanks for dropping by.

I love the off-set stripes and how it reflects the trigger photo. That one still has me stumped.

Very pretty Michelle. Love the butterfly and those paper strips. The little blings look great.

This is so perfect for both challenges. The offset pattern in the strips really gives motion to the card, and I love the simple row of gems at the top. Thanks for sharing this with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
