An Easy Card to Make That Works for Many Occasions

 The card I'm making today is a combination of two challenges, Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge 547 and Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 570. For the many vertical strips I used Shimmer Trim in 4 colors. I used Close To My Heart's Journey, Mink, Glacier, and Ballerina for the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 570. I colored White Shimmer Trim from my stash with a sponge daubers and ink pads according to the challenge. The outer edge of the card is a piece of Majestic Holographic 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. The black background for the stripes is 5 1/4 x 4". The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the All The Best Wishes stamp and thin cut set and I placed it on a piece of white glitter cardstock from our Specialty Papers. The sequins were from my stash.

Here are the Challenges:

Here is my interpretation using both challenges:
