Paper Crafts Color Inspiration Challenge #3

I'm a CAS kinda gal and I love it when I find a way to make things even simpler. I love cardstock, I hoard cardstock, I have TOO much cardstock and the scrap pile is growing out of control. One of my new years resolutions was to whittle down this pile to something a little more manageable and tonight I just discovered another way to do just that. I had to really convince myself that I did not need to go out a buy the Bazzill cardstock equivalents for this challenge, that I could find a close enough match in my scrap pile.Here is what I came up with:

Those strips of cardstock are straight from my scrap pile and all I did to jazz them up a bit was run each strip through a different embossing folder using my Big Shot. Of course I was looking for a not-so-formal sentiment to go along with my geometric patterns, but alas there were none to be had in my stamp collection (bummer). So now that I finally got some colored ink for my printer, I made things even simpler and printed my own sentiment. You can find the card sketch I used for this card on page 109 of the Paper Crafts Go-to-Sketches magazine.
