I got my inspiration for this card from both the Ways to Use It challenge and the Inspiration Challenge. WT challenged that we use paper strips...I chose the Herringbone Technique for my background. IC challenged that we use patterned paper. But, then, the Alphabet Challenge for a touch of red fit my card to a "T" as well! I also use my Bath & Body Works Magic in the Air Shimmer spray for a sparkly effect over all. Too bad the pictures don't pick up what a super shimmer this creates.
