so grateful for you

I never thought this would be possible but I managed to make a CAS using a Mojo Monday sketch challenge :)  Typically their sketches are quite involved with lots of elements and the sketch I used is no exception but for some reason inspiration hit me and I kept it simple using all the elements ... basically I cheated and used, what I love to call Washi tape, "lazy paper".  Check out my card here ...
as you can see I layered my washi tape like patterned paper ... it is great not to measure instead just lay and rip!  My center embellishment is made up of 2 scalloped circles that have be folded concertina style to form a rosette ... here is a close up ...
as you can see I pretty much stuck to the sketch ...


I would also like to submit this card to CASual Fridays - 'round of applause' incorporate a circle, Southern Girls - thankyou, Crafty Catz - buttons and bows and Through The Craftroom Door - anything goes.
materials used - smooth white and yellow cardstock; Echo Park 'so happy together' papers; Annabelle Stamps 'squared posies' stamps (title); Staz On jet black ink; Spellbinders Standard circles large and petite scalloped circle large nesties; Annabelle Stamps cuts by design 'christmas ornaments' die; Washi tape; 10mm yellow gingham; buttons.
Thanks for looking.

Your card really caught my eye- I love the bright colors and I don't think washi tape is lazy at all. You still have to decide on which colors/patterns to use. Great CAS card!
