you are perfect

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!
Hope your week is off to a good start?!

I'm swinging in today to share my card for the Waffle Flower Challenge! If you haven't seen it yet, this month is all about stenciling!

Here's my card.

To do my stenciling, I made my own stencil using Waffle Flower Crafts Tiny Wings die. On a piece of scrap paper, one by one I placed each butterfly where I wanted it and ran it through my die cutting machine. Thus giving me my stencil. 

On my card base, I stamped a few 'floral' images from Waffle Flower Crafts Loved stamp set, using a light grey ink. After, I placed my stencil over my card base and used a couple different distress inks in purple. Once done, I removed my stencil and then stamped on my sentiment using Waffle Flower Crafts Loved stamp set (for the 'you are') and the In Every Way stamp set (for the 'perfect'). To finish things off, I added a few sequins and some white twine. 

Not only did I focus on the stenciling, though I also tried my hand at using purples and the sketch. ;) 

Be sure to swing on over to the Waffle Flower Challenge and see all the DT creations! And while you're there, I hope you'll join us?!! :) 

Hope to see you there! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
