Simple Sketches # 4

Hey Crafters,

Here is a quick card i made based on Smriti's Simple Sketches .  I have used my latest PP to create this card.
I used equal size strips places them in different angles to create the look and stuck them together with a paper strip from the back. I also distress each paper with a matching distress ink colour which is not so prominent in this pic though. I then stuck the final piece with straightened borders on the main card and cut of the excess from either side. Isn't that quick?

Thanks. Have a nice day!

Supplies: PP, El Erre Fabriano, Distress inks
