I hope you are all well and, for those of you in the UK, enjoying some lovely autumnal weather. I always find autumn so refreshing after summer, especially the less than lovely summer we've endured this year.
Today's card came about by accident. After I'd finished the die-cutting of leftover snippets of card session I had recently, and as I was clearing the scraps into the bin, I was halted by this piece.
It actually looked quite regular and it occurred to me that it would make a stencil, A bit of inking with some red and brown inks and the addition of a few flourishes, gems, and a greeting, and here's the resulting card.
To help it blend better, the peel-off greeting, which was silvery, was rubbed over with the red ink too.
I'm now looking at my wee die collection with new eyes and I'm thinking that, with careful selection and placement of them, I could make even more stencils ... yet another way of using these fab goodies.

The painting of the lounge is now finished ... yay!!!
The furniture is back in place, the pictures and portraits are back up on the walls, the new curtains are up and harmony has been reinstated.
Maybe life will get back to normal now :)
