So after receiving my stencil, which was a background stencil and my silver texture paste, I had to really think how I could use this in my design, so I hope you like what I came up with.

I made a Mother's Day card

Using a Create and Craft half scallop card blank, some black, white and mint green card stock.

I started by placing the stencil on the black card stock and taping it down with masking tape.  I then ran the texture paste over the stencil, removed the tap and stencil and left to dry.  I cut a border around this and layered this onto white card.  I used a base layer of black underneath and wrapped a mint ribbon around this, placing pearl strings on top of this.  I cut the image out with my scan n cut, stamped the sentiment and placed this onto a MFT die base layering the mint using the same die to the back.  I placed this onto the card and finished off with a lovely bow a pearl medallion and some all important tonic pearl drops to match the card.

Now I am sure you want to continue on your hop so here is the order and the next hop link is at the bottom of the post, have fun

Kate, what an elegant card. Such a sweet design with the Gruffie and Lilac.
The stencil design is so very pretty with the silver embossing paste. And your signature bow in that gorgeous mint green just finishes is off beautifully. So glad you could join us for this blog hop.
