Stripes - Less is More challenge.

It's taken me a couple of days to finally come up with the idea for my card for the Less is More challenge this week. I knew that somewhere in my stamp stash there should be something I could use as stripes.

I found a Unity Journalling strip stamp which I thought would fit perfectly with the challenge. I've also used the sentiment from SU's Big Bold Birthday stamp set and stamped this repeatedly into the journalling strips. I've used post it notes when required to fill up each area completely with the sentiment. I then coloured each box in with a different coloured Promarker and then used a retired SU Alphabet and Number set to complete the card. This is the first card I think I've done for the challenge that isn't monochromatic!

I think my cold is finally starting to clear up - haven't felt so bad today and managed to meet up with my friend Lisa and her dog Shadow and Max and I enjoyed a lovely walk around Stover Country Park. It was a lot milder today and the sun shone for the most part while we were out walking so a very pleasant couple of hours spent catching up with each others news.
