stenciled birthday card two. . . .

for a friend's upcoming birthday:


I just received my Stamplorations club kit yesterday and wanted to use one of the stencils included in it for this card.  I sponged pink ink through the Confetti Circles stencil and then moved the stencil a bit to sponge the green ink through again.  After die cutting a stitched oval from MFT, I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and then popped the Memory Box butterfly above it.  The black opal gems are from Hero Arts. 

Playing in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  things that fly.
Stamplorations:  flash stencil linky party.
Stamplorations:  March stamps and stencil challenge.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Joy, your sweet comment brought me over to thank you (THANK YOU!), and oh my! What a discovery! Your cards are ever so lovely, especially this one, with the pretty stenciling paired with the butterfly (I'm butterfly-addicted *grin*). Stunning card! Your STAMPlorations tulips in an earlier post: amazing! WOW!
