Stand Proud

So happy to be celebrating Canada Day this long weekend and grateful to be living in such a great country.

Meet today's card
Just a simple, fun card using 4 different stencils and 4 Distress Oxide inks.  Great way to get more mileage from your stencils too!

So, I began by measuring out my card front so I would have equal sections.  I used a light pencil to mark it all out.  I knew I wanted a bit of white space between the panels so I measured for that too.
All stencils from A Colorful Life Designs.
Next, I masked then stencilled the pink; (Picked Raspberry DOX) using the Flowers Gone Wild. I move the mask and using yellow; (Fossilized Amber DOX) and the Retro Star Grid stencil repeated the process.  The bottom left corner is done with some orange (Carved Pumpkin DOX) and the Chain Weave stencil and lastly the bottom corner is done with blue; (Peacock Feathers DOX) and the Lava Blooms stencil.
I removed all the masks and using my ScorBug, I scored between the panels to better help define the areas.
I die-cut the dandelion twice and glued them onto my card base then added two black gems to help the flower pop against the colourful bkg.
I simply mounted it onto a plain white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
