Week 107: STRIPE

Pin stripes.  Stars & stripes.  Jail stripes.  What kind of stripes do you think of if given the chance?  Maybe this week's cue word doesn't make you think of stripes at all, but something else entirely!  Whatever the case, we want to see how you are inspired by this word!  Sherrie, one of our guest designers this week, suggested this word back when we were celebrating our 100th challenge, so you have her to thank for this particular challenge!

Take a look at what the design team and our guest designers were inspired to make after they saw this word!
