Happy leap day and a new card

Happy leap day everyone! I got this idea off of the Memory box blog about using packing tape a die cut and glitter to create some sparkle. Love how it came out!

I used the Vivienne Butterfly die from Memory Box and cut it out using black cardstock. Then I took a piece of clear packing tape and adhered it to the die cut. Next I got out the glitter. I did use two colors to create the effect.

Designer paper is Washi paper that I picked up at a craft show many moons ago. Sentiment is from PTI. I cut the tag from their tag die collection and stamped the Happy Birthday on. I used teeny tiny self adhesive gold pearls on the corners. Card base cardstock is from Bazzill and cut in a 5 x 5 square.

Have a happy leap day!
