Spots and Stripes

When you think of spots and stripes do you think of geometrical cards? Well, I was working along those lines for the one-layer challenge at Less Is More when I opened my drawer of stamp sets and saw this set, my current favourite. So, here's my take on spots and stripes..

The spots were such fun, and I must admit I borrowed the idea for bubble wrap stamping from my lovely team mate over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown -Mynnette (check out her blog for more brilliant ideas, I am sure she won't mind!).  I think I should have stamped off first for a more subtle effect, but I do like it! As for the stripes, well you get it don't you! I sponged a little very light blue sky just to highlight the image. I added a sentiment to make what hopefully is a great masculine birthday card.
Off to create more now as I have the whole morning to craft, yipee!
