Paper Smooches Stencil and Ampersand

Good morning! Just dropping by with a card I actually made a LONG time ago for a publication call that was never picked up, and I never got around to sharing. I thought I would pop it in now for a couple of challenges:

First up, linking this up to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Thanks/Thanksgiving:

Next up, linking this up with this weeks Anything Goes Challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks:

For this card, I used a stencil and 3 different distress inks - I taped the stencil down and stenciled in a random circle with one color, turned the stencil one quarter turn and used my second color, then turned another quarter turn and used my last color. I thought it was a fun layered effect with the colors! I added a little die cut ampersand using Paper Smooches Always and Forever Dies and little pieces of foam adhesive, then added my sentiment from Many Thanks stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
