My favorite flowers and embossing on washi tape

Hi everyone!  I have a card to share today that uses my favorite Spellbinders flower dies and something I discovered.  First the dies, my current favorite flowers are the Rose Creations!  I just LOVE these.  They are so pretty and come in so many sizes, there is something for all your projects. 
See the sentiment?  It's actually heat embossed on washi tape.  I was afraid at first to emboss on the tape thinking it may lose it's stickiness or pucker up in places on the cardstock, but nothing like that happened.  It stayed perfectly!  Who knew?
To create the background on the card, I partially inked the Shabby Musical Background stamp with Seattle ink and stamped it on the top right side. 
You can find the stamps and dies used on this card at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up picture of the embossing.

    Great idea with embossing the Washi tape! But, you always come up with amazing ideas that look beautiful!
