Special Occasion


I can't believe we are half way through November already and it's time for another card for 
The Flower Challenge.
 This month our challenge is called
 A Special Occasion.

A few of my friends will be having milestone birthdays this year, so I thought this would make a great card for a special occasion.

I began by making my background piece using the Shaving Cream Stenciling Technique.  
After that was dry, I placed the piece inside my MISTI, inked up the wildflower stamps from Tim Holtz with Memento black ink and stamped over the bkg.  
I stamped the sentiment from Rubbernecker using the same technique.
To add further interest, I inked up the Script stamp from Penny Black with grey Memento ink and stamped it over the background.

Adding my card to these challenges:
