Flourishes Timeless Tuesday on Wednesday

As usual, I'm a day late with my Flourishes Timeless Tuesday#46 card.......again! LOL I'll try to do better next year, I promise!
This week Betty challenged us to do stenciling. I love what Silke did with her stenciled card, so I copied her idea to use an Impressabilities for my stencil. I sponged Versacolor sand beige on Vintage Cream card stock and used 2 different Nestabilites dies for the image and pale pink mat beneath it. The Sweet Pea image was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear detail embossing powder before coloring with Tombows I added a little piece of ivory ribbon and stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip, using the SU Thank you Kindly. This went together quick & easy, which was ideal, because I need a thank-you card!
I'm off to the kitchen again to continue baking so enjoy your Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
