Ready...Set...Go!

For this card, I tried another technique from Technique Junkies. The background was created using the Zig Zag technique from the Aug/Sept 09 issue, please visit their website to learn how to get the full instructions: http://www.techniquejunkies.com/ It looks just like party streamers, so fun and festive. Paper: White Daisy, Sunflower, Dutch Blue, Tulip, and Clover Meadow cardstock and Animal Cookies patterned paper Inks: Sunflower, Dutch Blue, Tulip, and Clover Meadow Twill Ribbon, Cranberry Sparkles (retired), and the itty bitty Clear Sparkles.
