Ten Tacky Tapes

Sooo... Cath, over at Moxie Fab World is issuing a whole bunch of super fun challenges straight from the pages of the new 75 Creative Card Challenges idea book from Paper Crafts Magazine. Well, my friends... these are not the easiest challenges in the world. HA! But, alas, I have begun with this one and I do intend to continue with the others because, while they may not be easy, they are SO SUPER FUN!!! I'm a sucker for a good challenge!

So... this one is for the Use 10 Different Embellishments Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I had to think about what I wanted to use, but then I just glanced over at my shelf, saw my mega-basket of washi tapes and went, "AHA!"

Yup. That's totally what happened. Just sayin'. So, my dear bloggy reader friends... my Ten Tacky Tapes card...

...*Feel free to insert a drum roll for dramatic purposes here.***

You Are Wonderful

You. Are. Wonderful.

And no, I wasn't speaking directly TO the tapes. Although..... hmmmmm.... I do love me some super fabby washi tapes. HA!

You Are Wonderful (detail)

I pulled ten fun tapes from my stash. While doing this, I also decided I need more blue tapes, and a few more in the a few other color ranges, as well. Just sayin'. We won't discuss how many rolls I already own. HA! I added the tapes to the card, tearing the ends to create a neat torn edge-thingy at the bottom. The sentiment is from the Neat & Tangled Kindness Matters set, which, by the way, you need. Because it's awesome. (No, I don't design for them... I just love that set! HA!) I added a cute brad from the Eyelet Outlet to finish if off.

So, really, I totally just used this challenge as an excuse to play with my tapes. And I'm totally cool with that. Just sayin'. I might do another card on this one, as it is kind of fun for a CAS girl to try to embellish with lots-o-goodness! :)

Have a Happy! :)
