Beautiful Young People ... Beautiful Old People

Having my Stamp Room cleaned up and organized motivates me to sit down and create cards more often.  Last night, I used Freshly Made Sketches #113 as inspiration.  

The card base is simply White Daisy cardstock.  On a narrower piece of White Daisy a sentiment from Scrapbook Statements-Women was stamped using Slate ink.  A "post-it note" was used as a mask so that images from the Honeycomb stamp set could be added using Cotton Candy and Whisper ink.  Cotton Candy Washi Tape with large circles was used with a layer of Slate Washi Tape with smaller circles for the border as shown on FMS113 sketch. 

This was a very quick and easy card to create.  It was fun to just use a small amount of stamping and some Washi Tape for added color.  Washi Tape is certainly my favorite embellishment right now.  It is so easy to use, you get a large quantity on the roll, and it adds such a nice touch to projects. 
This is my second entry with the Freshly Made Sketches blog and I really enjoy creating their 'clean & simple' cards.  There is a "linky" on their website with thumbnails of other entries for this week's sketch.  Click on any of them to go to the blog post for more details.
