Stencil too ...

Good afternoon another sunny day in Oxfordshire ... I hope you are all keeping well and safe.

Today's card:

A simple and quick card created by first stencilling the flower with acrylic paint before adding detail with coloured crayons.  I die cut the image creating a frame from part of it.  The main image is adhered to the card front and then I created a window panel added the frame and popped the front onto the card with foam tape to add some dimension.

I used:
UNIKO Pure Florals Chrysanthemum stencil
Dienamics Stitched circles nesting dies
Simon Says Stamp Happy 3 x 4 Stamp Set
Faber Castell Polychromos

I'm entering the following challenges:

AAA Cards #162

Perfectly CAS Challenge #7

Before I go I need to say a great big thank you to the team at the Twofer Card Challenge for the Honourable Mention that I received for my entry in the March Challenge ... I'm a big child at heart and get very excited when I 'win' a challenge.  These are the cards that got me the Honourable mention.

Take care and stay safe!
