FTHS "How've you bean?" Card

This week over at the FTHS blog, the sketch challenge is a fun one as usual! The twist is to use washi tape, and I decided to do both the sketch and the twist.
I made a top-fold 6X6 inch card using Richard Garay dp for my card base. Then I sized up my FTHS digi using my Silhouette Design Studio software and printed it out along with the cute sentiment that came with this adorable set. I can't take credit for the lovely coloring here, by the way. Faith Skrdla offered a choice of one of her colored digis awhile back for donating to her daughter's hockey team (who made it to Nationals this year! Woot woot!), and I chose this colorful image. I die cut the image with a Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Frame set. I then used a yellow Gelato to add some color to the frame. I die cut the sentiment with a Gina Marie Designs Drop Pennant die and added some yellow Gelato to that, as well. I used some fun washi tapes to add my strips behind the image and popped up the frame and sentiment with foam tape. It's a bit busy, but I think it turned out bright and cheery. 
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
