House Of Cards Challenge July

The current challenge at 
is to use stripes and/or the colors
in the inspiration photo below:

I used use similar colors, 
with an added pop of black, on my card.

The flower was created from crepe paper banner !
You know, the long rolls of lightweight colored paper
 bought at party supply stores.
I free hand cut petals and leaves then
applied a tiny dab of liquid glue (too much and
the paper falls apart, it is so thin) to hold them in place.
Double stick tape would work better.
I chose a rhinestone for the center of this flower,
but decorative brads, buttons, etc would look nice, too. 

The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed white
on black card stock then trimmed. 
It created a faux embossed lettering tape.
I cut small pieces of chipboard to attach them
to then glued them to the card front.
This gave the word strips a bit of dimension.

Thanks for looking =)
