Hi there ~ When I saw the cue card for this week's CASology Challenge, I knew that I had the perfect stencil, which is from Sarah Gray's (Funky Fossil Designs) Folksy Shop called "Elegant Lady"...Thank you, Sarah!
This is a large stencil, so my card is 6.5 x 7.5". I've decided to frame it and send it to my step-granddaughter, who is a grad school student...I think she'll like it!
I used distress inks for the stencil and added the stamped sentiment from MFT and the die cut word (also inked with DI's) from Reverse Confetti. I also added sparkle by spraying Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray before lifting the stencil, and to the die cut...very pretty IRL. Lastly, I placed a few clear sequins and slapped my hand before I added too many, keeping the design truly CAS!
I would also like to enter this card in the challenge over at Addicted to Stamps & More for the theme 'CAS'
So, that's it for me...I hope all of my U.S. blog friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I hope everyone is taking advantage of all the great Black Friday sales :)
