The Card Concept One Year Anniversary

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the One Year Anniversary Challenge over at the Card Concept.
I made mine clean and simple - using a lovely Vintage Floral Stencil from Wendy Vecchi.  I sponged the stencil with 4 different Ranger Distress Inks - Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage and Scattered Straw.  The sentiment is from Sweethearts from Waltzingmouse.  I layered the stamped and stenciled panel. to a Sweet Blush panel and simply added 3 sequins from Neat & Tangled.
A quick post tonight - I'm off to watch Downton Abbey.  Happy Anniversary Card Concept!

I'm also linking this to Virginia's View Challenge - Clean Slate


Stamps:  Sweethearts - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  White, Sweet Blush - PTI
Ink:  Archival Jet Black, Ranger Distress Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage and Scattered Straw.
Accessories:  Vintage Floral Stencil - Wendy Vecchi/Stampers Anonymous, sequins - Neat & Tangled.
