Christmas Collectibles, RS78 & LIM134

Hi Stampers! I'm burning the midnight oil tonight, very unlike me! I'm posting either really early or really late, depending on how you look at it. I just realized one of the challenges I'm playing in ends at midnight tonight, not midnight tomorrow. How do I always screw that up? 

I love when I stumble across two challenges that are a match made in heaven. The sketch at Retro Sketches this week is awesome, and I interpreted it quite literally with the ornament and all. The center panel seemed like a perfect place to use some Christmas themed Washi Tape.

Week 134 - Recipe Washi Tape

Well, lookie here... The challenge at Less is More this week is Washi Tape! OK so I had to channel my CAS self which is hidden away most of the time. I shrunk down the sketch a bit to leave a good amount of white space. But is it Less is More enough? We'll let the design team decide!

I just love this classic Christmas color combo. All the card stock used here is Whisper White. I covered the center panel with strips of Washi Tape, horizontally. Then, I took a slightly larger piece and covered the edges vertically. I love working with Washi Tape. It really is so much fun!
