Happy Heart

I found another challenge blog, and of course I needed to add it to the list of challenges I won't get done in time to link up. But you know what? A sketch is still a sketch, a color combination is still a color combination, and I don't need the pressure of meeting more deadlines, so I'm okay with playing them whenever.

This one might still be current ... checking ... omgosh, it's still current! Okay, then, this is for the Nacho Average Challenge:

and it screams washi tape, doesn't it? Here's my card:

I pulled out two packs of new washi tape *ahem* to initiate them. The top piece I used on the card was cut in half - I love that you can just stick it to your trimmer and cut it.

I used a Taylored Expressions sentiment stamp set that hasn't seen much ink, die-cut it, then futzed with some of my Wayfarer scraps to make a circle for the back. The pieces actually overlap, and thankfully that's difficult to see from here. :)

Because I can't get much to permanently stick to washi tape, I put a few SU Dimensionals behind the circle to prevent saggage, and used some foam tape at the top and bottom to secure it to the card front.

I'll be back shortly with another challenge card. Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: SU Certainly Celery card stock, SU Dimensionals, Taylored Expressions Happy Heart stamp set, and the following:
