SPARKS Challenge- Stripes

Hello friends,

Just popping by today to share my take on this week's Paper Smooches SPARKs Challenge.  This week's trend to watch is Stripes and here is my take:

PS- Holiday Cheer

I incorporated stripes in a couple different (but subtle ways) into my card.  First, the dark gray background was embossed with a chevron stripe pattern.  Is there a rule that stripes have to be straight?  I hope not!  

The second set of stripes is from the snowman's scarf.  I stamped and paper pieced the scarf onto patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs.

Here is a look at this week's inspiration :
