Little Lettered Pretty Striped THANKS

Hello........ do you know what today is?? It's International Left Hander's Day! Since I'm a Leftie, I get to celebrate... yay! Have a great one to all you Leftie's & Southpaw's today - embrace the smudges on the sides of your hands. I'm proud to be left-handed, which means I'm in my right mind... well, sometimes ;)
Onto my share for today........ I had the idea for this card a while back, but finally sat down to play and it worked out just as I'd wanted it to! I love when ideas work out just as I imagine them too! I used some of the striped papers from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stacks, and cut them into 1" and 1/2" strips. I layered my strips onto a piece of Basic Black, matted onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock - it's hard to tell since they are both dark colours. I lined up all my stripes so the matched - and look like the stripe turns from Blackberry Bliss to Hello Honey... I trimmed the excess off once the stripes were aligned. I cut out my thanks using the Little Letters Dies, and used the void/stencil part of the word (I kept the letters to use for another project, gotta love the multi-use of these diecut letters!). I added it to the bottom over the Hello Honey stripes, since Blackberry Bliss is so dark, it would be easier to see over the yellow colour. To finish I added some tiny punched flowers with a Rhinestone in each center.
