shabby meets washi

hi there!  i have a lot to share, so it's post #2 for me today.  if you haven't checked out the manicure monday post yet, then you'd better head over HERE to see what i've got cooking!

this project is in the form of a card, and i've paired a whole bunch of elements in a sort of shabby chic style.

first, you have to know that the patterned paper in the background is from Bo Bunny, and it's fabulous. the different sections can be used as journalling spots, tags, or backgrounds.  the solid glitter strip on the right is from SEI.

and then here's where we see the washi elements :D  i seriously LOVE washi tape.  it's found it's way onto almost all my recent projects... it just happened!  so i've used some Tim Holtz tissue tape (as they call it), as well as a TH number card.  the orange stripe is from American Crafts, and the pink diagonal is from Target.

the butterflies are from recollections, and even though the card is more peach-y than pink, they do bring some non-pastel color to the card.  this would be perfect for a wedding or a girly birthday, maybe even a wedding anniversary!

oh, and before i go, one quick word regarding layering washi tapes... TOTALLY AWESOME.  (i guess that's two words, oh well.)  in reality i was shooting for a peach type of color with the tape, but i didn't have any, so i improvised.

at first i didn't like it, but it's grown on me.  and hopefully you!  let me know what you think!

thanks for stopping by (again).  we'll see you back here soon!
