Time to Celebrate

My card today uses a stencil by The Crafter's Workshop and translucent embossing paste by Dreamweaver's Stencils. This is my first time with this paste and I didn't do it perfect but I really loved playing with it. 

I taped the stencil down and used distress inks and an ink blander to each of the flowers using pinks and purples. Then I applied the clear paste and let dry for hours. I matted the background piece to a Bazzill purple cardstock and placed a small line of patterned paper just below the middle. The border die cut is by EK Success, the scrap of lavender cardstock and pink for the butterflies is also by Bazzill, the pearls are by Recollections, stamp by Just Rite Stamps and the ink for it is a distress marker-Seedless something or other. 

I really wish it would have photographed better but I guess that will come with practice too.




{I couldn't decide if this whole shot of the card was better then the one above so I included both}
