Saturday Slot

The challenge at CASology has the cue card of STENCIL and since I've had a stencil I've been itching to use this seemed like a good opportunity to break it out of its polybag.  I've also struck lucky with it being CAS week at ATSM and flowers mentioned in the Inspired By Words Time Out challenge, so my card is going into all three challenges.       Grab Our Badge!

So here's my card:

I'm so loving this aptly named Happy Flower stencil. I chose some warm sunny colours and used my inkylicious brushes to ink through it. It's always such a wonderful surprise to see what's happened when you lift the stencil!

A simple but bold sentiment finished off my one layer CAS card. This card is destined for a friend's birthday coming up next month - don't think she reads my blog as she's not into crafting.

Stencil: Artplorations, Happy Flower
Stamp: Clearly Besotted, Happy Birthday
Inks: Ranger distress, mustard seed, spiced marmalde, picked raspberry, lucky clover; Memento, tuxedo black

Huge thanks for taking the time to visit today, so pleased to see you here. And keep crafting!
