Less is More ~ One Layer Stripes

 LESS IS MORE this week is One Layer Week with the the theme being Stripes!

I did struggle with this one i have to admit maybe because its been a very sad weekend for all the community here on the island. A young life lost....taken too soon! I have used Waltzing Mouse stamp set called Pic Nic Patterns and inked using Lucky Limeade by Stampin Up. I then stamped a Lovely as A Tree stamp and sentiment from Hopeful Thoughts SU stamp set using chocolate chip ink also from Stampin Up. I scored lines top and bottom of the card for effect!

 I have unfortunately had this awful upset tummy bug so I'm having a jammies day....keeping warm and chilaxing!!

Please remember to leave some love for Chrissie and Mandi

Thanks for stopping by...much appreciated and don't forget to add your name to my blog candy above

Oh Ali, this is really wonderful. I love your embossed lines at the top of the card, the texture of the white paper, and the green stripes beneath your tree image. It is a perfect sympathy card. I love it!
