Many Thanks......

Good morning! 
 I have a card to share with you today that uses texture paste and a stencil.  The stencil is by Heidi Swapp. I just adore these polka dots!.  Before applying the texture paste, I added a wee bit of silver paint and mixed it well.  I taped my stencil to the piece of card stock, and scraped it across using an old credit card.  I love the subtle texture it gives!
Since I wanted the background to take center stage, I added a few simple embellishments to finish off the card. 
The flowers were created using orange vellum and my Silhouette.  I added a couple of feathers, ribbon, and my stamped sentiment. As a final touch I added a few orange sequins. 
I feel as though lately, my blog is a bit blah.  I don't have as much time lately and I apologize for the numerous "short and sweet" posts.  I keep hoping my life will slow down just a tiny bit, but not sure if that's going to happen.  
I hope you can bare with me! 

Have a great day my friends!

I really like the subtle vintage feel of this. Will have to try using texture paste. I'll pass on the feathers unless I want my cat even more into my card making space! Although you really make me want to try some!
