Festive


Morning.  
Hope you are still enjoying some relaxing and fun Christmas festivities.

Needed a last minute card for a friend who is coming to visit.  This was an quick and easy one and you could change the sentiment and it could easily be for another occasion.
I have a circle stencil that I cut from a heavy piece of acetate that I used to randomly stencil the circles on my card front using Mowed Lawn and Barn Door Distress inks.  I splattered just the red circles with white acrylic paint for interest.
Stamped the sentiment from MFT and done.

Adding my card to these challenges:

FAB card! I have a "thing" for circles and polka dots and they look awesome on this card! Great choice of traditional Christmas colors, too. Like the splash of white paint, too. :)
