I had a play with my distress inks and 2 coordinating Dahlia stencils from Altenew. I used worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade and citron to create the background. I die cut the GMD birthday wishes sentiment from citron and worn lipstick, adding black die-cuts beneath them to help them stand out a little more. I went with some light summery colors and needed the touch of black so they didn't blend completely into the stenciled background. I added some tiny black gemstones to finish this card. I'm not so sure I like this - I'm thinking it may have looked better if I'd done the sentiment words in black. I may die-cut them in black and layer them on top before I'm ready to mail this card.
I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Simon Says Stencil it.
Thanks for stopping by and do have yourself a wonderful Friday!
