You Make Me Happy...

The first Monday of Christmas vacation - and an MDS Monday card challenge - WooHoo!!!  Today, along with the sketch, Beth would like us to use tape on our creations.  I love love love wash tape - both digital and real.  I love how whatever is behind it peaks through.

I decided to "make my own" washi tape for this card by using photo boxes filled with DSP so that I could tear the ends of the "tape".  I then changed the opacity until what was underneath the tape showed through.  Easy Peasy.

Here is the sketch for this challenge - 

check out what there rest of the Design Team has come up with - there's some fabulous creations - as usual.  Also, make sure you link your creation to the MDS Monday challenge blog so we can have a look at your creation.

Thanks for stopping by - Hope your Monday is off to a great start.

Joan,I love your card! The "tape" you created is just perfect, and I love the subtle punches you used in the background. Just a really unique and creative card. Thanks for the Christmas message, and I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday with your family as well!!!

Ripped photo edges? A fun, different way to make the jagged edge of the washi... I hadn't thought about that. I love there is more than one way to skin the cat! Very cute card... love the sun and cloud elements paired with new SAB stuff.
