Wild About Washi Tape!

So I broke out the washi tape I found in Target's office supply aisle and I am hooked! Thanks to the washi tape and the pop of color it gave, this card came together in 15 minutes! Here it is:
To create, I cut my cardstock to a standard size with the fold at the top. I cut patterned paper to measure 3 3/4" x 5" and black cardstock to measure 3 7/8" x 5 1/8. Next, I stamped my background image with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. After layering the image over the black cardstock, I added the washi tape, twine and chipboard letters. Since I was mailing the card I used regular adhesive to affix this panel to the card. Here's a closer look:
I originally wrapped the twine around the card three times and knotted it. When I cut off the ends, I felt that it needed a little something else so I took the tail and made an additional knot on each of the other two lines of twine.

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink;
Patterned Paper: Lawn Fawn;
Stamp: Hero Arts (Formula Fun);
Ink: VersaMark;
Embossing Powder: Stamp 'n Stuff
Embellishments: Washi Tape (Target); Twine (Martha Stewart)
