Spots and Stripes

I was going to post this one tomorrow, but didn't want to risk missing one of the deadlines, so you've got a double dose of me today.


This card started life using the inspiration photo from Runway Inspired Challenge:


And the fiendish theme from Less is More:

It's a really tricky one this week girls!
Not only is it 
ONE LAYER
but we are also asking you for 
SPOTS and STRIPES

Then I realised it loosely fitted CAS(E) This Sketch:


And the CAS-ual Fridays colour-blocking challenge:

CFC93: Use blocks of color in your Clean And Simple creations.
As always, projects are NOT limited to just cards :)

Happy Birthday from Creative Expressions Urban Beat
Stripes from Creative Expressions Urban Life
Oblong from Hero Arts LL871 Circles and Heart Fancy Notes
Dots made using a Dottorific Pen

    It appears to me that your mojo has been fully restored! Love the fun and whimsical look to your card - it really does capture the 'young' look of the inspiration photo!
