Butterfles and Washi Tape.... or is it?

For those of you who haven't yet fluttered over to Mrs A's Butterfly challenge the theme this time is W for Washi tape. Now I have never posessed any of the stuff so I knew I would have to go shopping.... or would I?

Here is the card I sat and made last night. The butterflies are Hunkydory and the sentiment is Clearly Besotted. As for the "Washi" tape - well take a look at the last photo and let me know what you think.

and here's what I used for my "washi" tape

Okay it's not smooth like washi tape but I think the texture gives it a bit of interest and it is quite see through.... plus I get to make my own designs.

I hope you're all having a great weekend. I had some super news from my daughter (in Australia) this morning to let me know she and her boyfriend have got engaged... so a long chat on the phone and a big smile on my face.


  1. Well this is brilliant! Bonus points for making your own washi tape! I have often thought of doing this myself when I'm looking for a certain colour. Such a cool idea! Love your card! The butterflies are so pretty! So happy to see your card over at Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge!

  2. A fabulous card and a great idea to make your own washi tape - I must give that a go!
