Wonderful Washi at V's Sweet Ideas

Hello all my bloggy, creative friends.  I hope that you're all having a great week.  I'm back to share a card that I made as my Design Team project for V's Sweet Ideas.  This month, the challenge theme is "Wonderful Washi Tape".  You will find all kinds of gorgeous washi tapes at V's Sweet Ideas.  Vanessa carries several brands and styles of washi tape, and you can see them all right here in V's Sweet Shoppe.

I used some JilliBean Soup pink patterned paper that matched my Pink Triangle Washi Tape just perfectly.  I ran the washi tape down a strip of canvas and added a strip of Olive Green Bazzill that I punched with an EKSuccess border punch to give a decorative edge.  I made a seam binding bow and added a decorative stick pin.  The journaling card is from October Afternoon and the sentiment is an Inspirational Birthday Rubz Set from Classy Cards 'N Such.  I also added some sweet little Colorful Sequins from V's Sweet Shoppe to decorate the corner of the journaling spot.
I hope that you will stop by V's Sweet Ideas to check out all the wonderful washi tape, sequins, and dozens of other lovely crafting supplies; and then come play along with us in our Washi Tape Challenge during the Month of September at V's Sweet Ideas Challenge Blog.  You can enter two projects per month for the chance to win a great prize.  I look forward to seeing what you will create and share!
As always, I also invite you to share your creations this week in our Anything Goes challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  We have TWO AMAZING prizes up for grabs there as well, and we would LOVE to have you join us.
I'm sharing this Wonderful Washi card in the following challenges:

  4. Hi Karen!

    Great card! Love the paper choices and the colors are delightful. I have not seen that washi tape pattern before...I must find it! :)

    Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  6. Hi Again!

    Thank you so much for the comments on my post! How sweet of you to take the time to always leave such wonderful comments.

    You mentioned that you have the sewing background stamp but do not have a block large enough to stamp it. Well, neither do I! :) I just keep it on the plastic card, stamp the paper and run a smaller stamp over the back of the plastic (hope I described that well). It works most of the time unless I accidentally move the stamp.

    Have a great Sunday and I look forward to seeing your card for the KJ challenge tomorrow!

  7. Karen, this is so pretty! I have a bunch of washi tapes that I need to dig out and use, they are so fun to play with, I don't know why I keep forgetting to use them!
    Have a blessed week!

  8. Sweet card and that birthday sentiment is so cute.

  9. Karen, this is so sweet! Love your gorgeous ribbon treatment!

  10. Such gorgeous use of washi with your design elements Karen, the colors are so pretty. You make the loveliest bows too!!
