One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

October CAS Mix-Up Challenge

I decided to make this a Christmas kind of card!  I pulled out two Tim Holtz stencils.
the first stencil is part of a three mini stencil pack and it has holly on it, so I used a light green and dabbed on the color. Then I used a Dot Fade stencil over the holly with a Teal color.  I stamped and embossed my sentiment on the same teal paper .
thanks Loll and Bonnie for the fun challenge and for providing the videos for the technique!

Heart Hugs, friends!

  3. You've layered these stencils very well, Colleen! I love the teal and light green for a Christmas card! I wouldn't have thought of it but I'll be using it! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
