We had the pleasure of attending the 21st birthday celebrations of a very special friend on the weekend...a girl that we have watched grow from a caring, beautiful teenager into a gorgeous young woman with a kind heart and generous spirit. Her parents should be so proud of her!
Making a card for her was always going to be a challenge...her Mum is a cardmaker! So I took a deep breath, pulled out my Cuttlebug, and went with white-on-white simplicity.
The rosette was from a pack by Amy Tangerine, but I altered it with a punched circle and chipboard numbers to refelect the occasion. The pearls and ribbon finished it off just nicely, without adding too much fuss!
With that pressure off, I fell straight back into my washi-tape comfort zone :) A friend had texted me earlier in the day with a photo of a washi tape card that she had been inspired to make from my blog (how cool is that?), which of course inspired me all over again...don't you love the way that works!
Playing with the colour combinations really makes me happy...the inks, the enamel dots, the rolls of tape. These cards are so ridiculously quick to put together, and provide instant gratification to a time-starved and usually uninspired cardmaker like me ;)
Have you given washi tape cards a whirl yet? If you haven't, you really should....the combinations are endless, and it's a great excuse to stock up!
