AAA Birthday Challenge #22 - A Large Sentiment

Hi all!

We have a new birthday challenge over at AAA Birthday and this month the theme is to use a a large sentiment.

Play along for a chance to guest design for us in a future challenge! This time our Guest Designer is the very talented
Helen Nile!
You can find all the challenge details here as well as lots of DT inspiration!

I first stamped the background of the big sentiment with the Pinstripe stamp from Altenew. I used the Mega Happy die also from Altenew to cut out the sentiment.
Then I randomly colored some stripes with a black marker.

Next I stamped the florals from Wplus9 with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I adhered them onto a piece of black cardstock and stamped the second part of the sentiment with Versamark and heat set this with white embossing powder.

Finally I stamped the background of the card with the Diagonal Stripes from SSS and added the card front on top of it.
