Cosmic Colours

Hi, everyone!  I almost forgot about Cosmic Strawberry's Cosmic Colours Challenge this month - so glad Colette posted a reminder!  I have been wanting to use my stash of washi tape ever since I saw my friend Patti's cards here, so here's the card I came up with based on the colour swatch shown below.

I used my Marianne Craftables butterfly die and a mix of washi tape from Downtown Tape and Forever in Time.  The sentiment clear stamp and gems are from Studio G.  Cardstock is Staples. Here's the colour swatch:

  13. Great use of that colorful washi, and I was just about to mention the missing kitty on your card when I scrolled down :) Cute Honeydew :)

  14. When I saw your entry in our wings challenge at Incy Wincy Designs, I was intrigued as to how you were going to incorporate a kitty image with the wings. Like Carol, I was going to mention about the missing kitty when I scrolled down and just burst out in fits of laughter! Had a giggle about the comments - almost more about the cats! Anyway, before I forget to comment on the card itself - I love the die that you have used. I think it is one that I have too but never really used it as a focal point as you have. Love the deep colour you have chosen for the butterfly too. Thanks for joining the wings challenge at Incy Wincy Designs this week.

  15. Love your mix of washis along with that butterfly, Kitty! Thanks again for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
