Playing with Stencils

Hello there, I feel like I should whisper as it's late!
So a really super quick post to share a card I've made
with a new stencil from My Favourite Things.

As luck would have it Happy Little Stampers have a new challenge
this month all about 'Stencilling' so I'm heading over there.
I'd also like to enter another card at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge
to join in with their 6th birthday celebrations.

Card Recipe:
My Favourite Things: Concentric Circles stencil
I dabbed Versamark ink through the stencil before heat-embossing
with Hero Arts white embossing powder.
The background is sponged with Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey,
Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade. 
Sentiment is from Clearly Besotted: Happy Birthday and heat embossed on vellum.
To finish some Doodlebug sprinkles.

Ok thanks for stopping by and I'm swiftly going to
switch off the PC and tiptoe up to bed!
It's Easter bunny day tomorrow so Happy Easter all.
I'm out with family so catch up with you again soon.
