Welcome Back for another edition of the
This month I am hosting the challenge and our theme is:

Strip Down

This is a pretty simple challenge.  Mask a strip down the front of your cardstock and stamp away.

For my card, I masked the strip using Painter's Tape.  A simple tip if you are using the Painter's Tape is to stick it onto your clothes a few times to remove some of the adhesive.  By doing that, you are less likely to tear your card front when removing.
I used a new stamp set from Simon Says to stamp within the masked area.  I also rubbed on some Peacock Feathers Distress ink along the edges to define the stamped area.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment that is included in the set using Memento Black ink and my MISTI.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
