Simple stenciled background card for Card A Day Challenge blog

Good morning!  Today I am guest designing for Card a day challenge blog and this month is the July Stencil Extravaganza focusing on stenciling. I created the background with Antique Linen Distress ink and a green textured card stock.  I used a sponge dauber to apply the ink after securing it with washi tape.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment right on top of the background. I added an embossed poppy to the vine.

This is a stamp and die set that came from HSN.  It is part of the Crafter's Companion magazine.  The flower die comes in many pieces to create a beautiful 3-D flower.  I stamped and embossed each layer and then went back with distress ink and sponge daubers.
