Personal Challenge Week 8

Good Morning my friends!
     I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mondays seem to come around too fast for me! I must say though, that I had a great weekend and spent a good portion of it in my craft room. I want to thank many of you for your wonderful emails about my first haul video. You are all so kind to me and I appreciate having such wonderful friends. =)

Okay so on to week 8's personal challenge with Kellie. This was Kellie's week to come up with the challenge and she challenged us to use stencils with stamps. It just so happens that I had a stencil from the Mr. Huey's line from Studio Calico, that I had not opened yet. Well it's opened now! LOL
This stencil resembles a chain link or trelis chain and I just loved how it turned out.
Here is my card:
My card was made using cardstock and papers from Bazzill and Recollections.I taped down my stencil and sprayed it using my Tattered Angels glimmer mists dragonfly, sweet clover and forest green. I loved the color combination of the greens with the blue and the shine it gives.

My sentiment " Believe in Miracles" was stamped in momento tuxedo black ink and this is from a stamp set by Little Yellow Bicycle. I added a three dimensional butterfly sticker by Studio 112 as an added embellishment and finished off the card by adding black buttons in the corners. The buttons are by Favorite Findings.
Here is a peek at the inside of the card:

I carried the theme of the card to the inside by adding another butterfly and a button. The sentiment inside, "Faith makes all things possible" is also from the same stamp set by Little Yellow Bicycle.
Well thats my card for week 8's challenge. Please stop on over and visit Kellie to see her beautiful project for this challenge.
Thanks so very much for stopping by!
