Happy Day all!!
Diane with you on the blog today showcasing my card for 
our latest challenge "Neutrals With A Frame".

I pulled out one of my stencils from Dreamweavers called Floral Heart.
There are several ways to use a stencil, but today I chose a very 
simple one, sponging on ink.  
I used TH Distress inks Frayed Burlap and Old Paper,
sponging first the light, then the darker ink on top here and there.

Being I love the shabby/distressed look, 
I distressed the edges of my card stock.

I cut Spellbinders D-Lites Cattails and adhered to the bottom left of the card. 

I cut a small frame from Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight,
then stamped with a sentiment from the new and beautiful 
Not only does this set have a gorgeous floral basket to stamp, but it has nine
wonderful smaller sentiments, that fit perfectly on the small frames!
The butterflies are from the same set as above,
I stamped them in a gold metallic ink and then fussy cut them out!

The finishing touch to my card were a few LaCreme pearls added
to the stenciled heart floral.

We would love for you to join in our challenge with us this week!!

Ahhhhhh, very soft and easy on the eyes. Love the distressing and those wonderful cattails. I hardly ever use the smallest dies in a set, for shame. This works so beautifully because you didn't use one of the bigger dies. I'll have to remember that.
