Happy Birthday, Bird on a Window!

I just found a wonderful on-line stencil shop called Stencil Girl - and bought myself 7 beautiful new stencils!  So I was excited to fit one into the design of my card today!
This stencil is called Bird in Window -  the bird is sitting on a ledge of a lovely window with vines in the center which you can just see a portion of since I cut off a lot of it with my Tipped Tops Die.  I sponged Fern Green and Cornflower Blue Archival Inks on my stencil.  I stamped the sentiment from Simply Said Happy from Avery Elle (another new purchase!) on a Sentiment Strip from MFT.  I layered the die cut over my white card base and added 3 Caribbean Blend sequins form Avery Elle and called it done!
My card design was inspired by this week's Cas(e) this Sketch
I'm also joining in on the Card Concept Challenge -  my card is clean and simple, with the image to the left like the bloom on the bedspread.   I have a couple of layers - but most of it's white.
And a new challenge I just found:  PaperCrafting Challenge #17 - Sequins

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  One more day of vacation - than it's back to the grind!  But I can't really complain -  I had a week and a long weekend off of gorgeous summer weather - I'm ready to bring on the fall!

And here's a public service Announcement!  
Adela is having a template sale over at Creations by AR
