Washi Tape Birthday

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Our youngest grandson is coming over today to spend the day.
The local high school football championships are being played. Usually my hubby and he go to the stadium to watch all 4 games, but this year Ethan has a basketball game at 12:00. His game is on our side of town so we will go and then bring him back here. The football games will be on TV so they will eat pizza and enjoy each other's company and football. Their is a special bond between the two of them.
As for me, I will be making Christmas cards and also enjoying have Ethan over for the day. A local boutique is selling my cards on a consignment basis. So I have to get some Christmas ones made. I put 4 in their already but need at least 10 more. I don't make the same card so I have to come up with ideas and layouts for them.
Anyway, onto my card for today. This is another one that I made for the HYCCT challenges on Splitcoaststampers. The site is in the middle of awarding all the prizes now. I did win a $25 gift card to Waltzingmouse Stamps. Their are 5 grand prizes yet to be awarded and since I completed every challenge, I am in the running for those.
This is my card for Donna's HYCCT1314 blingtastic challenge. She wants us to create a card that is totally blingtastic and use glitter and rhinestones.

For the glitter I used pink glitter paper. I decided to create a birthday card. My birthday word is cut from the pink glitter paper with a PTI die.

I used Washi tape and some Tim Holtz tissue tape to create a background. I have never used Washi tape on a card before and I like the results so I will definitely try it again.

 My printed images (presents and bird) are from Darcie's Stamps-her U-cut line. They are all ready for a project-you just have to do fussy cutting. These images  helped me complete 4 cards for the HYCCT challenges. I added rhinestones to complete this card.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time..........God bless.
