CTMH Paper Focus Blog Hop - Confetti Wishes

This month we're focusing on the paper pack Confetti Wishes. If you're coming from Melissa R's Blog you're on the right track. 
First, I covered the card front with the confetti paper. Then a cut a smaller piece of the diagonal stripe on the flip side. I wanted to do something a little different with it so, I cut off a 1/2 inch strip and placed it perpendicular to the first cut to match up the stripes and give it a skip in the pattern. That gave it a little pizzazz from the usual look, don't you think?

I stamped a chevron shape from A1150 Charming Chevrons in Thistle, trimmed it out with my scissors leaving a little white space, then backed it with Pacifica cardstock. 

The sentiment from B1472 Love This Story (it's a Hostess Rewards Exclusive stamp set) was stamped with Pacifica, then trimmed out with my scissors. The sentiment shape can be trimmed out precisely with Z1790 Cricut Artiste Collection. I added Z3024 White Shimmer Trim and Z1752 Sparkles Assortment to bling it up a bit. A super simple and easy card to make.
