AAA Cards Challenge #62

Morning friends I'm back again with the latest challenge
details for AAA Cards Challenge and if you saw my Less is More
post yesterday you'll note I re-hashed a card I'd intended to use there.
It's an Anything Goes - BUT Clean and Simple 
challenge for the next 2 week so no excuse to have some fun and play along.
I even managed a 2 for 1 re-hash here so here they are ...
Using a multi-faceted stencil from My Favourite Things I've used
Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Blueprint Sketch
to ink it up then spritzed with water and perfect pearls. A little cropping and 
chopping with MFT Die-Namics: Blueprints 15 & Chevron dies, a sentiment from
Uniko and some coordinating gems from Papermania finish the first. 

The card below uses the outer space from the Blueprints die with the 'enjoy' 
sentiment from My Favourite Things: Brushstroke Birthday and 'Today' from
Uniko: Fontiments (discontinued)

As it's a 7th Birthday for Simon Says Stamp this week and the 
challenge over at their Wednesday Challenge is Happy Birthday
I'll be hopping across there with these 2 cards.
