this little light of mine

the most recent challnege at little tangles is all about using washi tape. say no more, i'm in!

here's my card:

i decided to try to the washi in a non-traditional sort of way, that is, i tried to make it blend in a little. 
the sunburst is die cut from my new die from my favortite things - i just bought it this past weekend, and i couldn't wait to use it! i cut a rectangle of white cardstock and covered it with that fabbie grey/doily washi tape. then i die cut the sunburst out and vwa-la! i was left with washi covered sun rays! :)

i decided the sun needed a face, and i actually created it with two stamp sets from neat and tangled: sparkle and shine and sketchy cupcakes. i love that quirky little smile! the sentiment is also from the sparkle and shine stamp set. oh, and the background of the card was created by using my very favorite heidi swapp shine mist - mustard. it's the best one - in my opinion! :) that whole sun ray panel was then popped up for dimension and attached to a shiny silver background. oh, i did add a few yellow enamel dots. i think they finish the card. :)

so that's it!
