Red, Striped & Summery!

It's time for another Monday challenge at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog! This week we have a special challenge hostess from our very own DT, Moira Coward from DT #1! Here is her challenge to us: use the color red and striped patterned paper somewhere on your creation. I'd love to see something summer related. It can be a scrapbook page from a trip this summer or summers past or a summer related activity. If you create a card or other project, it could contain suns, bright colors, etc. The sky's the limit but remember - color red, striped patterned paper and summery.

I've got about 75 gift card holders to make so thought I would think along those lines. I really like making this pocket card but I'll not be making 75. You can find the directions for this double diagonal pocket card here on SCS.

I used SU cs and the dp is from the Basic Grey Lemonade Paper Pad. The felt flowers are SU and the felt butterfly and ladybug on the tag is from K&Company. I hand cut the tag and added SU ribbon.

It's not a difficult pocket card to make but I used solid color cardstock instead of double sided paper so that added to the time. I really like how it turned out though.

limeLight Papercrafts is our sponsor for the month of August. If you haven't visited their website, hop on over there. They are having a great sale and have some fabulous products! I've got an order on the way and can't wait to play.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Totally Paper Crafts : #30 summer fun
Fab 'n' Funky Challenges: #36 flower power
