Bold Florals

Hi there.  I hope you are enjoying your Easter weekend.  Apart from yesterday, Saturday, the weather hasn't been that great so I have spent some time in my craft room enjoying myself.

I have made another card using a stencil as I really enjoyed using one last week to make two similar cards and amazingly there are no cute animals on this card at all!!!
I have used a stencil by Stamplorations called Bold Florals.

I first masked off a rectangle in the centre of the card and used Picked Raspberry Distress ink to create the background.  I then layed the Bold Florals stencil over the top and sponged Ripe Persimmon and Barn Door over the top.

I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy 3 times and layered them together after cutting them out with the matching dies to create some dimension.  The 'birthday' sentiment is also from the same set.
I am entering this card into:-

  Time Out Challenge #81.  I have used the colours from the inspiration photo.  This is the first time entering this challenge as I only discovered them last week.
