Less is More layer spots and stripes

The challenge this week at Less is More is a one layer card with spots and stripes. One layer cards are always tricky to do,and not my favorite, but I figured I had the time, I'd give it a try.

This is what I came up with.

Where are the stripes you ask? Well, if you look VERY closely around the tiny pearls on the flip flops you will see tiny stripes going around the center.

Just in case that wasn't enough stripes, I did this one too. I changed to another shoe instead of the flip flop.

Then I noticed some scraps laying there, so I put this card together with the leftovers. It is NOT one layer, but I thought I'd show you anyway!

Have a great day!

Great set of cards. Love the shoes and think your scored lines on the first one count as stripes.
