Colourful Washi


This is my second post of the day and a last minute card for Taheerah's fabulous Cure for the Monday Blues:

I love the bright colours and patterns on the inspiration photo and used my Kaisercraft washi tape stamps to create the colourful border.  I stamped them using Mama Elephant inks and finished with a Paper Smooches sentiment and enamel dots.  The grey down the side of the card echoes the magnetic memo board and provides a bit of neutral contrast to the bright colours. 

It took me a while to get here but I think the different patterns and colours work with the photo:

I was so thrilled to be picked as one of the Top 3 from last week's challenge - thanks Taheerah!

I will also link up at Addicted to Stamps for a second time with their Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks for stopping by - it's always good to see you :)
