Washi and die cut....

card today. I covered a piece of scrap card in wash tapes that were differing widths and designs but coordinated colours...I then die cut a simple butterfly to show off the colours and designs and cut a coordinating heart shape in turquoise to pick up the lovely shades of turquoise in the washi tapes, ( having just got back from Cuba I still have the bright colours of the classic old cars and buildings and turquoise sea in mind!!)

To pull the card together  I decided to cut off a half inch strip on the front ( as I love to see and make off the edge cards) and I covered the piece that showed behind the heart in a 1/2" strip of one of the washi's. Simple but effective, I hope you'll agree....and a card that will cover numerous occasions....

I am entering this card in the following challenges
