Less is More 54...One Layer Stripes

The challenge at Less is More, this week, is to make a one layer card with stripes!  Stripes...stripes...stripes...well did I stamp some stripes...but they're WHITE...hope that keeps me in the challenge, 'cause I kinda covered my card with em:)!!...
I first saw a card by Maile Belles (later in the post) with the complete set of Papertrey Ink Chevron stripes on a card, I decided to  use all the stripes on one block...and stamp them all, too:
I know, the ends of the stripes are hanging off the side, but this was the only "chubby" block I had, and being that I put the stripes going across the short side of the card...no worries, the hanging ends didn't even touch the sides of the card.  Maile had stamped in clear on a colored card....
but I decided to stamp in versamark, but emboss with white on a kraft colored card.  THEN...I chose a ribbon and found a Prismacolor pencil that matched the ribbon color(the possibilities for this idea are HUGE!!), and colored some of the kraft colored stripes with the colored pencil...just added some color:)!! The sentiment is Hero Arts (Find Joy).   Ran the card through my Big Shot with Papertrey Ink's Linen/Canvas Texture plate for added texture!!  Don't know what's going on with blogger, today...this post may be a little wierd...the whole format has changed and I am not adjusting too well!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
