SSS-Flickr Challenge 7

Another quick card post from me. I'm still in the thick of the chaos of the holidays, work and other life things, so I have not had much time to get crafty.

I happened to notice the new Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge #7 was about stencils, and I've been really itching to try some of the new goodies I got from them. So, I put together this wintery thank-you card.

I used Medium Dot stencil and some Broken China distress ink to create a dotty background on the front panel. I also used Ring Frame wafer die and some cardstock to create a colorful card front.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's Greetings and Succulents stamp set.

Lastly, I added a few sparkling clear sequins to a few of the rings.

  1. It's so pretty as all your cards!! I'm shure you will find a Desing Team soon, they are all so very professional :)

  2. Ah, Elle, this is so lovely! Loving the colours and that die looks like it is SO fun to create with. I'm with Ellen, too - if you are interested in being on a Design Team, I've no doubt someone will snap you up soon (and they will be lucky to have you)!

    1. Thank you, Kylie! The die is fabulous!! I wanted it the second I saw it, and I keep finding great new ways I want to use it. I've got another couple of fun circle dies too during the black friday sale, so I'm excited to see what great things I can make with them. :D
