Red and Yellow color combo

First off, check out this goodie!!! I thought it turned out so nice in the newsletter.
I wanted to play along with the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge. 
 This gave me a chance to play with a technique I have wanted to give a try.  I can truly say I had so much fun with this one.  I loved the yellow sweater that wrapped around the red top and the black and white scarf so I wanted to put those elements to use in my card. 
I cut strips from yellow cardstock, red cardstock and stamped a larger flower from Hero Arts with just black ink on white cardstock.  I cut a piece of white cardstock, 7" square and added these strips to that.  A yellow strip first, a red strip next, my stamped strip next and then red and then yellow again.  Now I cut this piece in 3/4" strips, cutting down through the strips.  I then added these strips to a 5 1/2" square piece of white cardstock, staggering the cut strips.    I wish I had taken photos of the process so this would make sense.
 I used little word sticker pieces to my sentiment, they are from Authentique and I added black rhinestones, I thought these went with the shiny black sunglasses she has on.
 Here is the photo for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger inspiration.
 Next up, the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week.
 I sooooo love October Afternoon papers so I picked these from the Sidewalk Chalk collection. 
The black bingo card is from Jenni Bowlin and so is that rectangle shaped label sticker.  The chipboard is from October Afternoon.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Oh I like your take on the Bargello technique!!! I recently re-discovered this technique myself and shared a tutorial on how to do it on the Spellbinders blog ... it's so much fun to see popping up more and more cards using this old sewing technique :) :) :)
