can you spot the stripes!!!

hi there,
well i have been playing with my dylusions sprays and these bright colours are certainly enough to brighten any day..and yes it is a tag..again..but i promise the next one won't be...so here it is:
The challenge this month at The Artistic Stamper is spots and stripes..so I have tried to add these can you spot them?!!! I started with a tag coloured with dylusions sprays, these are yummy colours and i am embracing this newly bright and colourful side...when dry i used Dyans fab faux bleach technique,stencils,stamps from Wendy Vecchi, The Artistic Stamper and Dylusions to create the background.I added some detail with my white pen and a rose made from the tattered floral movers and shapers die.

Finally i added imagine from a sheets of stamps for journalling from The Artistic Stamper and some ideaology..ooh and some ribbon coloured with dylusions spray...

It is very girly colours, but i am chuffed with the results..although i did scare myself a bit with the PINK ribbon!!!!
I am entering this for the following challenges:
