May your life be like a Wildflower....

My card today is made from elements in my stash box... 

The alcohol ink background was an experiment I did some time ago using stencils and Nuvo embellishment mousse - I love colours and the creamy mousse worked beautifully with the two different stencils... it has been waiting patiently for me to come up with a design idea.  So I simply trimmed it to fit a square card and then die cut a double stitched panel in white card to frame it and used foam sheet to 'lift' an give dimension.  To finish I added a stamped sentiment on a stitched die cut label.

I am playing along with STAMPlorations The Stencil challenge for April... Anything Goes  .....  AND also   ......   Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge #376.
Thanks for stopping by my blog   .....   have a Happy Day and Stay Safe
