Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - March - Sponging

Well, this month has been quite hectic and has gone past so quickly that I didn't think I'd get a chance to do this challenge, but I have!!  Happy dance from a happy stamper, get it . . . oh, please yourselves ;)  This is for the HLS #4 Challenge which is 'Sponging'

And as I used a stamp set that only arrived yesterday, I am also going to enter it in Darnell's NBUS # 4 Challenge  which for those of you who are completely new to blogland, is Darnell's own acronym, meaning, 'Never Before Used Schtuff'

Now, those of you who read this blog will know that last week I took an online card class and I made a card using one of the techniques from class using a homemade stencil and some sponging - ideal for the HLS challenge - so today I made another - I may make up a set of these as they would be suitable for any occasion with the right sentiment.

Anywho, I will waste no more of your valuable time and show you the card.  I will list the supplies used below.


Supplies used:

Selection of 'Distress Inks'
SSS - 'Curved Border Die'
Lawn fawn - 'Scripty Sayings' stamp set
? Woodgrain embossing folder (sorry, no label)

As always, thanks for taking the time to visit today and for any comments you leave, you are all appreciated more than you know.  have a great day.  Hazel xx
