A little spring......

in the middle of winter. I bought this awesome stencil from My Favorite Things awhile ago. The poopr thing has never felt the wetness of ink through it. I usually use something new within a few weeks. This stencil must have got put away and forgotten. 

Lucky for me Just Us Girls is having a trend week and the trend is stencils. I pulled out my stencils and while I was searching through them this wildflower stencil popped out. I knew that I was going to use it.

I wanted to keep the card CAS so the flowers would stand out. I chose a saying from MFT (old and I don't have the name of the set) and stamped it and then stenciled the flowers over the saying. 

Because I couldn't leave well enough alone, I dry embossed with a polka dot stencil over the whole thing. Here is a video from Shari Carroll on how to dry emboss with your stencils.

Check out what the DT did over at JUGS and share your creation!
