Washi Tape Challenge

Hi friends.  I hope you've been having a Happy Labor Day and not having to "labor."  At least I didn't have to labor at the office.  :)  I have a late card to share with you.  I belong to a blog group on Splitcoast Stampers called Stamp Addicts!  Back in July we had a challenge to use Washi tape on a card.  I hadn't used it before but I did have a few rolls of it.  Then I bought some more from Stampin Up and added to my stash.  I was able to combine this challenge with another challenge group that I belong too - Monthly Challenge Card.  There's a group of us that do a shoebox swap each month by one person sending to the others.  Then we all make at least one card and post it for the others to see. 
This was pretty easy.  I used a flower embossing folder, added the Washi tape and a sentiment which I popped up on dimensionals and then added a flower butterfly that I received in the July monthly challenge envelope.  The Stamp Addicts have also been swapping cards with each other each month so I sent this card to my partner Darlene.

I'll be sharing my August swap card in my next blog post.  Stay tuned.
