Creative Memories Card with Washi tape

I just love to multi-task!  I created this card for a couple of challenges, a card swap and my upcoming blog hop!!  My idea began with wanting to use more washi tape.  I had just purchased this Elmer's 3 pack of these green and blue tapes on clearance at Kroger.  So I pulled out my handy dandy iris boxes marked "green paper" and "blue paper", I sorted through and the best match was the Creative Memories Green & Caribbean Blue.   Now where I pulled out some real oldies are the stickers!  Do you recognize the first Creative Memories stickers, still looking very "Mrs. Grossman"?  Here, I have put them on white cardstock, fussy cut, and put them on pop dots to give them a new look.  I also cut the papers with Spellbinders Hexagons and embossed them with the same.  I also embossed the bottom white layer with Stampin Up Hexagon embossing folder.  As I was designing it, I thought it would pair well with the Sketch~n~scrap current card sketch.

Two versions:

I am entering this in the following challenges:
