Birthday Card ~Washi Butterflies {1st Post}

Good morning. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.
I'm going to a Renaissance fair today with my family.

I played a little today with washi tape.
First I applied it to white card stock.
Next I stamped then fussy cut the butterflies.
Then I embossed the background to add a little texture.
To finish off I simply added the sentiment.

Washi tape I used and a sneak peak of my second card.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flap Happy from Paper Smooches.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder from ProvoCraft.
*Sentiment fro Stampin Up
*Trendy Tape from Queen and Company.
*Other tape from Recollections and my stash.
*Sequins fro Darice.
*Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Memento.

May your day always be filled with love.
