Seize the Birthday ~ Stencils~

Welcome to another Seize the Birthday Challenge!
Your challenge this time if you choose to do the "toppings" is to use a stencil on your card!
Remember you can always do "Anything Goes" as long as it is still a birthday card!
I used a PTI stencil from the Garden Gate Kit, it resembles a lattice background which I sponged on Distress inks mowed lawn and citrus citron.
The banners, and flowers are also from the kit..
 We all look forward to seeing what you create, please check out the rest of the design teams inspiration for you!


Heart Hugs, friends!

  7. I love the lattice look of that stencil and the green you used. The banner and hanger are so pretty and the flowers make me think of the hollyhocks we grew and made dolls from when I was young. Great card!

  10. Oh Colleen, this is stunning!!! I have this set and still have yet to really get it out and play with it. I am still feeling a bit intimidated by all the bits and pieces. Maybe if I start by CASE-ing your card..... ;0)
