Happy 80th Birthday!!!

Hi everyone,

It is time for a new challenge over at Squigglefly and the theme is .... 'Make a B/Day card or tag' , easy right, how many of those do we need, right!!! You should check out the total eye popping candy brought to you by the team Rhonda's Rhowdy Rascals , just love it, so many new images to play with..............:))

I used the image ... ' Blown Kisses' by Lynne Stansbery and this card is made specifically for a lady being only 80 years young, still a spring chicka, right........:))
You can browse through the SHOP for this image and many more, have fun!!

Now on my card i have used , for the 1st time, some Washi Tape which you can find at Sawyers Place . The one i used is the black zig zag that is part of the Sampson Collection( set of 3). I have to be honest in saying that i absolutely love the feel of the tape, the different effects you get ( see my card - partly on white and partly on gold and both looks different). I used the Washi Tape instead of ribbon, now i can still add a bow somewhere if i want, just did not need it for this card, wanted it clean and simple! Do go and browse through the store, they are all stunning, ps: take your purse with, lol


Also entering this card into the following challenge:::
