Washi and the Dream Pop!

Washi and the Dream Pop!  No, it's not the name of a band. Yesterday, when reading through some blogs that I subscribe to, the CAS(E) this Sketch #52 prompted me to go to my Stamp Room and create a card.  
My creation uses the Holiday Tags stamp set, which has a coordinating shape cut using the Artiste cartridge for the Cricut.  The design of the sketch immediately made me think of using Washi Tape for the dovetailed piece.  So, I took some of the Cotton Candy Polka-Dot Washi Tape available in the Party Washi Tape 3-pack sold in the Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide.  In order to give the Washi a more vibrant look, it is adhered to White Daisy cardstock.  A strip of Glitter Trim on the Washi as well as Glitter Paper behind the sentiment image adds a nice amount of 'sparkle' to the card.  

More texture is seen in the card base since it was made from the Dream Pop paper pack which was a CTMH special earlier this year.  This banana colored cardstock has a wood grain look embossed on it.  The sheen of the embossing just adds to the general 'sparkle' and 'shine' of the card.  
To add just a bit more color to the card, a piece of patterned paper from Dream Pop was placed on the inside of the card, and is topped by a slightly smaller piece of White Daisy which has some Washi Tape with Honey Triangles on it to give the card a nice finishing touch. 

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
