I don't know about you guys but Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows. So after watching it last night this lead me to my butler stamp. I figured if you lived in such a huge place and had all kinds of servants like Mr. Carson the butler he would certainly be able to get rid of all the excess "stripes" used to create this card. It would be sort of like "Poof! Be Gone" and they would hastily disappear! And by the way my favorite characters are Bates and Anna...please name yours if you are a fan of DA. I used a crimper on my excess stripes on the silver tray. The silver tray and sentiment layer were made by using my handy dandy silver self adhesive plumber's tape. And thanks Joan for the tip to score your bg as an aid to stripe placement. It worked!

I'm a HUGE fan too, Polly.....didn't watch the last 1/2 of the SuperBowl so I could watch DA in real time. LOVE IT!! I like Maggie Smith's character...she's a hoot. Now back to your card. What a great butler image and I love how you did all your stripes. A TERRIFIC card...as always.

Polly, your cards are always so interesting in a non conventional way! My husband is watching that series, Mr. Carson is one of his favorites. Your card has sparked my interest and now I want to watch. Thank you.
