Retro Sketches -roses and washi tape

Hi everyone!  I took a little time last weekend to play along with a new-to-me sketch challenge blog.  It's called Retro Sketches.  I have seen some of my blogging buddies play along with these before and this week's sketch called out to me.  I received a new order of Washi Tape (yeah, MORE!) and had to bust them out and play!
My card uses the Spellbinders Rose Creations die templates, Washi Tape from Chickydoodle and accents from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
See the flower made from the matching Washi Tape?  To make that, I covered some cardstock with the tape and die cut it.  Works perfect if you want a matching layer with your tape!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!  Here is a close up picture.

Card deets:
Stamps - Pleasant Plurals (Gina K Designs)
Cardstock - AMuse
Accessories - Washi Tape (Chickydoodle), Green pearls and bakers Twine (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store), stickles
