Add Stripes - MilkCoffee DT

Hello all!

It's once again time for a new challenge at MilkCoffee, and this coming fortnight we'd like to see projects featuring Stripes. Easy peasy!

For my projects I decided to decorate a chipboard photo frame (from Every Craft's a Pound. It cost - oddly enough - a pound, lol).
Because the frame is slightly smaller than A4, an A4 piece of backing paper seemed ideal, so I browsed through my stack of magazine freebies (which often come in A4 size), looking for a stripy design to inspire me. I soon found it in the form of this brightly coloured beauty, which made me think of sweets (or candy, for those of you across the pond).
And because it was sweet, a sweet MilkCoffee character was required also. so this time I went with the adorable Soya, and I used 3 out of the 4 digis available featuring this cutie.

(I must apologise for the rather bleak photo... We've been having the most dreary weather recently, and try as I might, all the pictures seem to come out grey :-(  )

I didn't want to over-embellish the frame, so I dug around in my stash for sweet buttons in matching colours, and dotted them around the frame in three groupings, to mirror the three digis.

Finally, I added the "Soya" inside the frame, in lieu of a photo, but it's easily removable and replaced with a proper photo.

And that's my stripy creation. I'm sure you can all find some stripes somewhere in your stash, so when you do, don't forget to enter your makes over at MilkCoffee! And if you need some more inspiration, my fellow DT have some gorgeous creations ready for your perusal.

Have a fabby day everyone! (I certainly intend to... I have a trip to Hobbycraft planned! lol)
