Post 274: Encouragement Card

Hi peeps :)

How are you this Tuesday afternoon?
I'm having a little giveaway to celebrate my 1st blog anniversary. In case, you'd like to participate, all the details are here.

I'd like to share a card today. This was made for a Guest Design Post using Stencils, all the details are here

For this Encouragement Card, I sponged on Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide and Black Soot Distress Ink through the stencil to create the flowers and bird onto the pink card panel. The sentiment was stamped and then for a bit of sparkle, silver glitter paper was used for matting. I adhered the panel at a titled angle for added interest and added a few sparkly half pearls for embellishment.

Supplies Used:
CrafTreat Layered Stencil- Poppy
Lawn Fawn Small Dotted Rectange Die
Taylored Expressions Cling Stamp- Sky High Sentiments
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad
Distress Oxide Inkpad- Worn Lipstick
Distress Inkpad- Black Soot
Silver Glitter Paper
Baby Pink and Black Cardstock 250 gsm
Half Pearls
Tombow Mono Multi Glue

Here is a photo of the card:

I am playing along with the following challenges:
