YNS May 2016 DT Dare - Stripes

This month the Your Next Stamp design team was dared to show some stripes!  We accepted the dare which means you get the chance to win a stamp set of your choice.  All you need to do is head on over to the YNS Blog and leave a comment on the DT Dare post, found here!

I took the easy way out on this dare, yep, I am admitting it!   I went with striped paper as the base for a scene with the birds from the new stamp set Gardening Birds.
