Stencils and Stamps

Good afternoon crafting friends.
Today is the start of a new monthly challenge over at STAMPlorations and this is my card for your inspiration.

Can you guess the theme, well it's -

Well I had a great time playing with the new stencils from Shery and for my card I used the Leaf Print stencil along with my favourite Bloom Sketches Daisy stamp.
 I stamped the daisies then embossed using white embossing powder then coloured them with a w/c effect using DIs and then used the stencil to create the foliage by applying DI with a sponge. The happy birthday is stamped using the Sentiment Builders-Happy set. I mounted the top panel on a very slightly larger black one then on an A6 white base.

As usual Shery is offering:-
(voted by the design team)
prize: 2 stamp sets (3" by 5") if she used our stamps, 1 stamp set if you don't
+ guest designer spot in the May Challenge
Top picks
prize: 3 digi stamps 
+ the option to be a guest designer too in the May Challenge if you will use  STAMPlorations digi stamp (to be provided )OR if you already have STAMPlorations clear stamps
All winners and top picks will receive a personalized guest designer badge that they can display on their blogs, as well as a STAMPlorations guest designer watermark.
Frequent Players Spotlight. Play in all 3 challenges for the month for entries to the random draw. Prize is always going to be a stamp and stencil pack valued at $10.

So no excuses to have a go and join us this month.
