This is my first card from Day 1 of the four day stenciling course I'm on right now. I copied the layout and design from Debby Hughes (teacher) for this technique of sponging with a stencil and then adding vellum so that none of the beautiful design is covered up.
I made my own snowflake stencil on my silhoutte cameo and then sponged with two shades of blue ink. I white embossed the sentiment on the vellum tag and added a ribbon at the top (hard to see the photo). I added three sequins to finish (can you believe it's my first time using sequins??!!).

Love the soft, soft look! The vellum is perfect....like how the stencil shows through. Very pretty card. Anxious to see more from what you learn from these classes. Those sequins are trendy right now....they look great on this delicate card. tfs
