Rainbow Stripes Thank You Card

Do you ever wonder what to do with all the odd and end pieces of leftover cardstock?  When I read today's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays: Let's Strip, it occurred to me that now was a good time to utilize my cardstock scraps.  I found seven colours and cut them into 1/2" strips then taped them together and trimmed the sides to make sure it was even.  I layered the strips on a white piece of cardstock, then wrapped and secured a little purple doodle twine, cut out the sentiment with the Cricut machine (Alphalicious cartridge), ran the sentiment through the Xyron create-a-sticker, adhered sentiment, and adhered panel with foam tape.  Whala, a fun rainbow stripes thank you card.
