Washi Tape and Butterflies!

Hi, guys! This week, of course, has gone by WAY too fast! Vacation weeks have a tendency to do that, though, don't they? HA! I do have a fun card to share with you today, however, using some of the fun new stamps from Precious Remembrance Shop! I am using the calendar set again today! I did a color shadow technique on this card that is so simple, particularly with clear stamps, but really a great way to add a little something to your card!
Just a Note
I used strips of washi tape to back my cork buttefly (punched with a Martha Stewart punch). For the sentiment, I stamped it first in a coordinating color, and then, just the tiniest bit off from the color, I stamped it again in black. This gives the text a clean, color shadow that I think is really neat!

I hope you have had a wonderful week! I am still wrapping my head around getting back to the usual routine! HA! We'll see how that goes! I do have a FUN Blog Anniversary celebration post for my dear friend, Diana, coming up tomorrow including GIVEAWAYS so don't forget to stop by for that! We have a great sketch for you and LOTS of inspiration! Well, gotta run! I'm off doing vacation-ey things today...that being NOT WORKING! LOL! Have a wonderful Friday!!!!! Jingle Out!
