Project 358: A stencilled thank you challenge

Claire gave me a new die recently and when I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch I thought it would be perfect to try out :

The greeting is a die but it only cuts the inside diamond so I had to cut the frame by hand which made me a bit nervous! I had the green scrap on my desk and that was what inspired the rest of the color scheme by layering it behind. I got out a Tim Holtz stencil and used Distress Ink in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers for the bottom half. There was a tiny smudge when the stencil slipped so I added the yellow ribbon for contrast and decided to go for tiny enamel dots in yellow to add a bit more of an accent. 

I was slow to put it together but really happy with how it came together with all the different techniques.
