Last week I bought two paper piercing stencils and one embossing stencil. Yesterday was the first opportunity I'd had to try out these stencils and I couldn't do anything right. So, I tried again today and got on better with the stencils but hated the cards I made, one was very sombre looking because of the colours I'd chosen and the other had a terrible layout even though I liked what I'd used on it. I really wanted to put a card on here today and came up with this one, using none of my new stencils!!! At least it is suitable for public viewing.
