Stripes of Sunshine for my first Bloghop!

After my excitement of being highlighted on Nichole's blog for my All-Star Team card for this month's GSS, I'm so glad to get the chance to join in the fun of this month's bloghop. This is my first PTI bloghop and I am so excited to be here! :) I have wanted to join in for one for sooo long, but something always came up, either I wasn't around due ot work, or couldn't get my card done on time. But this time I wasn't going to miss it, since with today being a holiday and us being around. I can't wait to check out everyone's creation tonight too.
I LOVE using yellow and purple together. I had this flower laying aroundas, I didn't quite fit the card it was originally intended for the first time around. But I had this idea to put yellow stripes together and I immediately thought of pairing them with something purple, and this flower jumped to my thoughts. Good thing I was able to track it down!!
Well, hope that you enjoy the card, and that yoJustify Fullu had a wonderful last day of the long weekend. We did! We had beautiful weather - it only rained once here for us, when it was origianl forecase to rain many times over the weekend. Lucky for us it only rained 1x and after dark last night. And it didn't cool the weather down at all for today (which was a good thing).
It was a great way to start of the summer!!!
