This is the second of two cards using Certainly Celery, Choc. Chip and Cool Caribbean. The strip across the middle was an idea I cased from Cindy Haffner. Hers are much more detailed and totally gorgeous. Here's an example of one of hers:
The stripes on the bottom half of the card were made by cutting 1/8" pieces of cool caribbean and certainly celery.
edit: I made this card for a another challenge that a small group of friends and I are doing today, and then saw that it fit this challenge as well. The stripes on the bottom were all created from leftovers from a previous card, as well as the strip underneath the lattice. Even the top piece was a convenient leftover...albeit a larger one. tfl

Homemade stripes! Holy cow, that is almost as amazing as making homemade pie, or noodles, or even bread! I did all of that this morning before I made this card! I love the lattice as a background to your flower! This flower is one that really catches the eye! It's an awesome little card....no big surprise coming from you Tosh!
