Floral Thanks!

Have you ever used decorative tape in your paper crafting? I have not, and was challenged to make a card for the Moxie Fab World's challenge, Get Daring with Decorative Tape.

I didn't have any decorative tape, so I made my own. I took a cute fabric I got yesterday and cut a small scrap. I ran it through my Xyron so it was lined with adhesive, then cut pieces of "tape."

Below is what it looked like after I ran it through the machine. I only wish that I had cut the fabric on the bias, so that fraying would be minimal. I'll make sure to do it next time!!

The card makes me think of spring because of all those colorful flowers, so I am also submitting it for the "Spring" challenge at Less is More. I have not played with them yet, but it seems perfect for me-you know how I love CAS!

Here's how my card turned out:
Super simple and fun!
