With love!

Happy Independence Day everyone,

Today we celebrate our 65th independence day and it is just such an awesome feeling. While patriotism isn't always on the forefront but listening to the national anthem today is absolutely awesome.. I get teary for some reason.

I have a quick card to share with you which I made using Washi Tape.. yes I am absolutely in love with it and you would probably see some more projects with it.. :D... This is a simple card assembled really quickly but I was unsure of it as I felt something was lacking. I wanted a ribbon but irrespective of having tons of ribbons I never find the color I want for my projects. *sigh*

Anyways, let me show you the card.

This is the card lying flat

the card standing

I love the brightness of the card stock against the subtle tones of the washi and the sentiment ink, voila I found a perfect color.. LOL!!

Supplies used:-
neon green Fabriano card stock layered with Brustro
Washi tapes
Fiskars sentiment inked using MICIA pigment ink
Faux stitching

Entering it for the following challenges:-
CAS-ual fridays- square card ( this is a 5.5x5.5 card)
For the love of crafting=> CAS card
Creative Craft challenges=> Just a sentiment
Sentimental Sundays=> CAS

Thanks for dropping by guys.. Have a super day.. Your comments are highly valuable to me so please let them keep coming.
