Have a Great Day



Hi Everyone, 
Just a quick post tonight...My sweet blog friend Virginia Lu has another challenge for us this month - Virginia's View Challenge #2 and her theme is to use a Stencil on our card or project. So, here's my card:


  
My inspiration for this card is the photo on the bottom right. I used my new to me SSS Leaves Stencil, blending Mowed Lawn distress ink on the leaves, and to add a little dimension to the card, I popped up a few flowers. I added the Hero Arts sentiment on an angle and trimmed the card along the bottom and side before adding gems and sequins. I also placed a piece of vellum behind the panel, and a gold strip of foiled cardstock beneath it. 

So, that's it for me...Thank you so much for stopping by, and for your sweet comments! 

Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts - Messages with Flourish
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Mowed Lawn; Hero Arts - Pale Tomato; Versafine - Onyx Black
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Stamper's Select White, Berry Sorbet, Vellum; DCWV - Foiled Cardstock (Silver)
Stencil: Simon Says Stamp - Leaves
Gems: Stash
Sequins: Kelly Purkey - Silver
