Circles & Stripes Valentines

Some very simple Valentines featuring circles and stripes for two challenges ~ One-Layer Wednesday #78: Circles, Circles Everywhere and Less is More featuring stripes.

This week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge is to make a one-layer card using MORE THAN FIVE circles on your card. Now's your chance to give those circle sets and polka-dot backgrounds a workout.

Using five or more circles on a card isn't that challenging, so the real challenge here is that you are NOT allowed to pop punched or die-cut circles on your one-layer card...that's adding a layer!!! Of course you CAN punch/die-cut a circle out of the front of your card. That's not adding a layer.

At Less is More the challenge is stripes ~ The second week of each month is when we get back to the basics of Clean and Simple Design... the
One Layer Card. This week we have a really tricky challenge... I don't think we're going to be immensely popular with our LIMettes, but here goes... we would like to see
Making a one layer card incorporating stripes is not as straightforward as a regular card, but we'd like you be as inventive as you like.
You can use an image with a striped design, an embossing folder which incorporates stripes or draw or make some yourselves.
