Washi Tape Inspiration

What inspires you when you create a card? I was inspired by washi tape.
As soon as I saw Hero Arts' new Tiny Flags Background stamp,
I knew that it was going to be gold embossed and ink distressed.
 

Here's the inspiration, given to me by a sweet friend.
It's so gorgeous that I'm still hoarding it.


And here are my cards.



My daughter's reaction to both cards:  "Wow....it's so......so......"
She had no words.

I'm entering both cards in Paper Crafts Connection November Gallery Challenge
of SEQUINS since I used a few on both cards. Because they needed more bling....

Thanks, always, for stopping by!
