CAS on Sunday Challenge # 32 - Sparkle and Shimmer

I cannot get enough of my Glitter Washi Tape!! I loved the gold and silver tapes and recently purchased a light/dark pink and light/dark blue and was dying to make a card using as much as I could.

So, at CAS on Sunday their inspiration for this week is 'Sparkle and Shimmer', what a perfect opportunity to try out the washi.
This was a little experiment for me. I wanted to keep it one-layer, so didn't want to put the washi on top of the card stock. So, I cut a strip out of the front of the card, put the strips of washi across it, trimmed it and then put the strip back with a panel of card stock behind it..ta da! It actually worked!!!

The glitter washi and enamel dots are from Papervine. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft 'Hip Hip'.

I'm also going to add this card to the Mod Squad Challenge where they are looking for 'One Layer Wonder's (this will be my 2nd entry). Also to the Colour Me! Challenge #18 where its 'Anything Goes' with no more than 5 different colours. 

The kids are back to school tomorrow after having two weeks holiday. We had a fantastic 'last day of the holidays' today. We all went fishing off the jetty in Picton and both of the kids caught 2 big 'spotties' each! We then stopped at the skate park on the way home so Max and I could work on our skateboarding skills. What a perfect day!

Take care
