Introducing Yay! My card for the Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoast today. The challenge is to use dots and stripes. As that could get busy for a CAS card, I let my paper do most of the work with the dots and added the stripes with my fence. And, as I always need birthday cards, I used a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Hello Beautiful. I embossed the "Yay!" with silver embossing powder and stamped the rest using Tim Holtz Distress Inks Chipped Sapphire.  I coloured my balloon with Martha Stewart Glitter Markers and my fence with Spectrum Noir Markers. And of course my trademark sequins. This was such a fun card to make, thanks for having a peek.
