Dear Ones~
It's been so long since I have posted anything here on my blog I'm not sure if I can remember how to do it. We had an awesome time out West - my head is STILL spinning.

Today's offering was made for:
Make It Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink, to create stripes
Just Us Girls Challenge,  hosted by my dear friend Nancy Leppek this week, to use a stencil.

Here's my card:

I used a die by Spellbinders called Diagonal Chevron, die cut it with light blue card stock, and then layered it over the white card which had been stenciled with translucent paste and spinkled with clear glitter. The glitter looks pink in the photo, but it's really just sparkly clear. Then I put some die cuts from Ellen Hudson on top, and silver heat embossed the sentiment. I have to say I'm not really happy with this photo - I think I need a new

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Stash Blue Card Stock
Spellbinder's Diagonal Chevron Die
Ellen Hudson Wild Garden Die Set
Sparkle and Sprinkle Graduation Stamp Set
Tim Holtz Bubbles Stencil
Dreamweaver Translucent Embossing Paste
Recollections Ultra Fine Glitz Glitter
