I made this card for the Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. When I was making it, it was snowing where I live. I think we are all a little sick of the weather we are getting, and that was my jumping off point for this card. I stenciled my background in bright cheery soft pastels using my Memory Box Honey Comb Stencil. I then inked my image and spritzed with water very lightly, so as not to disturb the ink on my stenciled layer. For a little sparkle I added some Wink of Stella to the leaves at the leaf axil. The challenge was to use chipboard, for which I have "zero". So I die cut my smile die 5 times in 120lb cardstock and took great care gluing them together to make sure all was lined up as it should be. I matted with a very pale green and added some sequins and gems to finish.
