Happy Washi Tape

I forgot to share this card the other day, please excuse the slightly off focus, I took it on my phone just before I popped it in the post never checking the quality of the pic.
I know I've shared similar before but it just has to be said that the ScanNcut does make it easy when you're strapped for time and you need a card for a male. I saved this merged cut a month or so ago, all I needed to do was work out the size I needed and cut it as one and then cut each letter individually, simple when you can just scan in all of the paper remnants on one cutting mat and move each letter into place. The strips across the card are three different washi tapes. The one with the diagonal stripes I customised by picking up the print from an old book, such a simple technique you just lay the washi onto the page, rub the tape firmly then lift it up bringing the print with it, I've never done this before but it's something I will definitely do again.
 Of course it's no longer sticky but that's easily rectified with a tape runner.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

DCD, Words,
W2SB14, Something different,
YSP, Anything goes/male card,
CCC265, Birthdays,
CFTC, Birthday,
STB, Anything goes,
TCCB102, Birthday,
M-MandM, Masculine, 
EAC310, Text as main.

Thanks for stopping by,
