So here we go:
And I used scraps of DS paper that were just laying next to my paper cutter! Yay, me! Yes, those strips of DS paper are going in opposite directions on purpose...to give it a little oomph! The bases are virgin Blue Bayou, but everything else was cut from scraps. I cut the strips of Natural White and Blue Bayou 3/4" wide and stuck the ends into a 1" punch to round just one end. I think the blue strip needs a little something - maybe some brads or gems or dew drops. But overall I am pretty happy with the outcome.

Thanks for looking! I'm off to finish up some laundry and play with my new In Color papers and inks. I'll post some of those creations later this week.
