Washi Tape and Stamping...AND Gallery Idol Prize!

Happy Thursday, my friends! If you missed my Chicago post from yesterday (part 1), please click here. I had made this card a while ago and thought it's perfect to share today! First I stamped and masked cake images and then I added the mix of Washi Tape.
019 
Supplies: Life of the Party (Fresh Squeezed Stamps), Target Washi Tape, buttons and Hero Arts Inks

It is sort of funky and neutral! I think it will be perfect for any gender and age. I am entering this to Moxie Fab World's Sticker & Tape Challenge.

Lastly, here are some exciting happenings at my house. Over the (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend, I picked up my Gallery Idol prize from my in-laws. 
( I had shared this photo and message over Facebook) 

To see is to believe...
I am so blessed to be getting the Gallery Idol prize this past weekend. Since I live in Canada...it takes a little longer. Thank you, Paper Crafts Magazine for giving us card-makers some amazing opportunities to create and offering such generous prizes!! Big thanks to the sponsors (Fiskars, Hero Arts, Fancy Pants, American Crafts, Crate Paper...). I truly hope this tradition continues! I am still overwhelmed...thank you, thank you!!
— feeling excited.
 Thanks so much for stopping by!
