Good morning~ I'm here to post this bright and cheerful card to the City Crafter Challenge Blog using Washi tape.

I started by heat embossing PTI's Postmarks background in clear on a white cardstock panel. I then used Tim Holtz distress inks in Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade to create the background color. The leaves are cut using a Spellbinders die and the flower is cut from PTI's Funky Florals, which is no longer available. I distressed the edges of the flowers as well and added a button to the center. I used Washi Tape on the top and bottom of my vellum embossed sentiment.
I'm also entering this card into Word Art Wednesday Challenge
and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
