Happy Mail for Colour Me

When I saw this week's photo for the Colour Me challenge . . . that striped tie . . . I knew just the paper I would be digging out for this challenge.  Specifically it was the diagonal striped pattern paper in my card creation below. 

And when I pulled out the paper, I knew just the sketch that was going to inspire me, as it was one with diagonal cuts that was presented to StampNation members in one of our features about sketches.  The sketch definitely lent itself to that pattern paper. 

One of the other patterns had some lighter shades of blue and red, and I used two neutrals - white and the kraft color in that pattern paper where I stamped my sentiment.  But it all went very well with the Night of Navy and Real Red Ink.
