More cards for OWH

I was determined to do some challenges before they expired. A novel concept, I know! Since there was a color challenge right next to a sketch challenge on my printed sheet of "DO THESE CHALLENGES", I used them to make this:

A washi tape card! When you see the sketch, you'll know why this popped into my head. It's the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

See? Doesn't it just scream washi tape?

Now for the colors. I used this combination from the current Colour Me! challenge:

I can hear you now, saying, "But you didn't use those colors!", and you'd be right. That's because even though I have an embarrassingly large collection of washi tape, I have nothing even close to those shades of green or blue. HOW can this BE?!?!?!? So I went with the spirit of the challenge and selected a blue and green that didn't clash too much with each other. I'm sure I'll be disqualified, but I'm okay with that.

Why? Because it was such a great sketch, and I liked the colors I chose, so I made EIGHT cards, six of which will go to OWH, so: WINNER!  All eight weren't Congratulations. In fact, only one was, because I was getting tired of stamping Happy Birthday:

Also, I ran out of that color green layering paper, so the rest were white-on-white:

Like that font? So do I! It's one of the newer sets from Simon Says Stamp, and it jumped into my shopping cart when it was released. It's linked below, the better to enable you. You're welcome.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stuff I used: miscellaneous washi tape that miraculously pretty much goes together color-wise, SU Night of Navy card stock (for the stars), SU 2-way glue pen, and the following:


  1. This is such a beautiful clean card! You're right, washi works perfectly for Linda's sketch - I love the combo you've used, especially the bright green one!Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!~

  2. I ALMOST used washi for this challenge because I, too, have an embarrassingly large stash of washi tape! LOL! I love that you combined stars and squiggly lines - they go together so well! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
