AAA Cards challenge #12

Another week, another AAA Cards challenge.
 This week, the challenge is to use Angela's card for inspiration.  
 I found so many things about her card that I wanted to put to use. I started out with the long, skinny shape, a size I don't usually do.  Next off was that black and white background. How wonderful is that word "thanks" cut from metallic silver paper! That die is from Clearly Besotted. 
Here was where I got to pull out my grand new Tim Holtz stencil! Be sure to check out Blue Moon Scrapbooking for you supplies.  I used Distress Stain and the stencil and then when I picked up the stencil, I spritzed my piece with water because I wanted a diffused look to that design.  Those adorable flowers are stamps from Wplus9 Designs.  They also have matching dies. There isn't a die for the leaves though so I fussy cut those out.  
Be sure to take some time to play along at AAA Cards
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
