CASual Fridays #30 and Dilly Bean Stripes

(Edited - So excited to have been picked as a VIP for this challenge on the CAS-ual Fridays blog!)

So I am really on a role of getting some challenges done these days!  And, I've even been able to do a bit of combining.  I tend to prefer to create a seperate card for each challenge but sometimes they just need to go together. 

Like this one at CAS-ual Fridays ... I used the diagonal of Stripes, Kraft, and Pink.  This meant it would easily fit the first weekly challenge at a new challenge blog called Dilly Beans which was STRIPES


Here is my card:


I'm totally digging those big wide faux ribbon dies (like the 6th and 9th ones HERE at Papertrey Ink) and decided to create my own template like the home-made Half & Half ones I showed on my last post. 

The flower is from Two Birds set by Hero Arts and coloured with Copics (pinks) and watercolor pencil crayons (green).

I love the tic tac toe idea for challenges as the end results are so varied.  Off to check them out!!
