friend to friend ~ Stencil Surprise



I made this card for Shelli Gardner's Stencil Surprise Challenge at her blog, So Shelli. This was my first attempt at using the Stampin' Up! Decor Stencils...and I think I'm already addicted to them. What a "WOW" feeling when you lift the stencil after inking it up...very cool!



Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #62 and Rachel's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #52 were just the layout and color inspiration that I needed to get started.



I knew the card would be fairly bright when I was done, but you may have wished you had your sunglasses on before viewing it...LOL! I definately had fun with this one. My friend, Libby, and I got together today to inspire, create, and share...basically we made a big FUN mess:)



Happy Sunday:)

Wonderfully done, Stacey! Where there are butterflies, I am happy LOL! These off angled panels kill me but this sketch is very similar to Mercy's from last week so I think I can "embrace the off angle and make it my friend" LOL!
