Card Chain Challenge April 2014

I LOVE taking part in Deborah Nolan's Card Chain Challenge each month ~ you get to send a card to someone somewhere in the world and you get one as well.
This month I got to send my card to Oreet who lives in Colorado.

You make me smile.

I had fun making this card.  The stencil was sponged with two green distress inks, slightly moving the stencil for the second sponging.  The stencil I used, is actually a cake stencil.  It is a round stencil that you lay on top of the cake and use icing sugar to sprinkle on top.  I picked up 4 different stencils for $1.99.  I added a Hero Arts butterfly and sentiment.  I trimmed and layered onto the a black background and added a small stripe of green PP down the side as well.

I hope Oreet like it.

I've joined up for May's Challenge - HERE - do come and join us.  It's fun.

Thanks for stopping by.

very clever to use a cake stencil - i'll have to look in the cake decorating dept. for some - love all your greens - so springy (at least it is here)
