Sparkle and Shine Challenge 24

Hello! Hello! I'm back again with a card for the next Sparkle and Shine Challenge. The winner of this challenge will receive a $15 gift card to the online store Right at Home.

Here is the inspiration photo:

 My card based on the inspiration photo:

I actually hand created the herringbone pattern. I took a piece of computer paper and adhered strips of cardstock in various colors and widths at an angle. Then, I cut the entire paper into four strips. I adhered the four strips onto heavy card stock (Neenah 120 lb.) alternating the direction of the stripes to create the herringbone pattern. I ran it through my die cutting machine using a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp.

Then I stamped sentiments from Altenew Label Love, cut them and aligned them on the base at the same angle as the colored stripes, and adhered them with foam dots to pop them up and make them stand out a little better.

Now, I thought the card was done until I remembered that this is the Sparkle and Shine Challenge, which means I needed to add some embellishments. I found the enamel arrows in my stash from my Eyelet Outlet designing days, popped those babies onto the card and it was done. Finito. 

Please join the challenge. Don't forget to visit the other designers' blogs for more inspiration!!
