Less Is More...One Layer... and Stripes

I don't know if you've ever had a day like I did yesterday, but time to create didn't exist, but even if it had, I didn't feel creative.  I spent last night going through a bunch of card making magazines and put little page sticky notes next to cards that caught my attention and I liked:)!!  This morning, when I DID have some time, I was armed with page upon page of inspiration ....so I made another card for Less is More's challenge to make a one layer card with stripes.  I also made a couple more, but will put them on a separate post:)!!  Here's my card:
I used an exacto knife and cut stripes on a scrap piece of paper I had folded in half(spacing them apart, so sponging would not be a problem). I placed the stripes, one at a time on the card, and sponged in different shades of brown, overlapping a bit...some distress, some Stampin Up inks.  Added a papertrey ink sentiment in Soft Suede.  Here's a pic of my templates:

Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
