Hello!  Here in the United States, it’s Independence Day, and at Cards in Envy we’re tieing into the patriotic mood with a theme of Stripes.  For this challenge, create a card featuring stripes of some sort.  It doesn’t have to be a patriotic card; it can be for any occasion.  The stripes can be stamped, die-cut, stenciled, or designer paper – whatever you can imagine, so long as it’s striped, it’ll work for the challenge.  Remember too that your card needs to be flat enough to fit into an envelope and be mailed at the regular first class postage rate.

I’ve gone with a birthday card for my card for the challenge.  After all, Independence Day is regarded as America’s birthday.  I gave my card a more neutral color scheme, though.  I’ll be donating this card to Send a Smile 4 Kids, so I thought it was best to make it suitable to give to any person of any age.  I used the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge for layout inspiration, but rotated the sketch 180 degrees.
