A Washi Happy Birthday

Good morning out there in blog land.  I have really been lax about posting but I think I have some good excuses.  My sister from North Carolina was visiting for 2 weeks, we visited our granddaughter one day and my sister and I organized and held my paper crafting yard sale.  I do have to admit I got a little too relaxed during this 2 plus weeks.  To ease back into my blogging I have a card based on two challenges:  CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #31 and Sunday Stamps Challenge #51.

This is a pretty simple card to put together (wouldn't want to do anything too brain strenuous now would I?).  I used Sahara Sand card stock for the base.  A piece of Daffodil Delight card stock was first run through the Big Shot with the Large Scallop Edgelit and then again using one of the Delicate Designs embossing folders.  Above that I added a strip of Gingham Garden designer paper.  I tore the edges of three strips of  Gingham Garden Washi Tape and
added them.  I wasn't too sure about washi tape but I think it will be a fun embellishment to add to cards and other projects.  The sentiment from the Label Love stamp set was heat embossed on Daffodil Delight card stock with VersaMark and Melon Mambo embossing powder and punched out with the Artisan Label Punch.  I punched out a circle from a piece of Melon Mambo card stock and wrapped some Linen Thread around it.  The sentiment was attached to the circle using Glue Dots and then I used dimensionals to add it to the card.   It felt good to be creative again even though I took it pretty easy.  I hope all has been well with you; I'm looking forward to catching up on my blog hopping.  Thanks for stopping by.
