  1. What a fun washi tape background on this fabulous card Becca - love that image too, and how you have left him white and let him really stand out.

  2. This is a wonderful use of Washi, Becca! I have tons of it and rarely use it other than in my planner. The patterns you chose are just perfect for your adorable image! Thanks for your lively submission to the challenge at 613 Avenue Create1

    1. Thanks, Chana! It was definitely a great way to use the whole set because previously I've used 1 or 2 at a time on a card, but not all 4. Appreciate you acknowledging my entry to 613 AC.

  3. Great card. Thank you for your comment on my blog. Yes my Easter card is all digital. Gecko Galz is a digital company so all my cards for them are digital. Also digital is easier on my sore hands. Though I do make some hand made cards.


My heartfelt thanks for visiting my blog.
