Less Is More - One Layer Spots and Stripes

Good morning! 
I have a lovely weekend off, to spend with Keiran, and I am really looking forward to it! I have a new washing machine coming at some point this morning, then we're off skating!

But before all this, I have of course, peeped at the challenge at Less Is More and made a card for, it, though this one was a little tricky to execute! It involves masking, and that's not something I do a lot of!

I stamped my sentiment first, then stamped again cut it out, and laid it over the sentiment on the card. I then stamped the spots and then the stripes, using my Stamp-A-Majig for each stage.

I finished with 4 tiny gems. I usually use an odd number of gems, but anyway I put them made it all look off centre!

Cardstock - Whisper White
Stamps - Happiest Birthday Wishes (H), Solid Stripes, Dot, Dot, Dot
Inks (Markers) - Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral
