Embellish Challenge

The latest Embellish Challenge intrigues me. I am sure stripe and dots are the re-occurring theme in all of our card-making world. Before I show you my card, you must see this new stamp I received from my Hero Arts win last month. This Single Sunburst stamp is DANDY! 
I gave it a go with this new stamp...and this is the result.

What do ya think? I know, I know, I am NUTS to fussy cut the Single Sunburst image out...but was it worth it? Why, YES, it is to me! I used my latest Lifestyles embossing folder ( the grey wavy lines, paper from Basic Grey) for the strips and incorporated the Raindrop Background for the dots. Then I added SRM Stickers (sentiment) and a Washi tape over the Hero Arts Earth Ribbons.
merci
While I post this card, the song "You can't Hurry Love" (The Supremes) came to my mind!
The same principal applies to card-making!  You've got to take the time and do what you love. There is absolutely NOOO hurry!
