Happy Birthday stenciled card

Whoooopie and a big congrats to all the 
CAS Stencil team.....

Guess what??   it's 11am and my breakfast dishes are still soaking in the kitchen sink... mmmm ... naaah I'm not worried, I sat down to check my emails with a cuppa and the next thing I have a stencil and ink and sponges.... and I've made a card

It was time his NEW stencil became creative... so  on a white card panel I taped it in place and used Tattered Rose DI to sponge over the ink - softly fading out.  I took a coral colored pencil and added some depth to the droplet points and then a line of white gel pen dots, then cut the panel with a crazy stitched die, to fit the old rose coloured card.
Next from my stash I found this butterfly die cut in white card so sponged over it with the same DI and then some Ripe Persimmon on the edges... I added some white gel pen dots to the wings too and a row of tiny pearl beads to the body.  To finish I stamped the sentiment on matching card and mounted this and the butterfly with foam tape.

I am playing along with CAS Stencil January challenge - Use a New Stencil  ....  AND  ... Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge #369 ....   AND .....  The Daring Cardmaker - Something New.
Thanks for stopping by my blog --- have a Happy Day
