City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 123 ~ Wishi Washi 2

Hubby and I went to The Kingston Trio's concert over the weekend, every time I went to an event like this, I just "stick out", LOL! Not only because people who attended these concerts are old couples (not that I am very young but I do look like kindergardener among them), also I am the only Asian there, they probably cannot believe I am familiar with at least 2 of their songs, "Where have all the flowers gone" and "Tom Dooley". I sang these song with my uncle playing the guitar when I was just a little girl.


Although none of the above three were from the original Kingston Trio


but they are just as amazing, I will so go to their concert again next year.

Week 123 is hosted by Ros

Wishi Washi 2 is the theme this week, you have to use washi tape plus 2 other embellishment items

Here's my DT sample


besides washi tape, my other 2 are button and baker's twine




please come play along with us

Lisette Baker said...

This is such a simple design that is absolutely stunning I love it. The orange tapes are to die for, but it's what you have done with it that is SO clever. Brilliant.

This card is lovely- the washi tape you chose goes really well with the card and the feel you were going with. I want to start making cards but I never know where to start- you have lots of inspiration on your blog though.
