A New Gadget

Not sure if a stencil could be called a gadget but the stencil I've used on this card is well worth getting. It's from one of the Dutch designers and called Mery's Stencils. There are three stencils in the pack, graduating in size. The booklet I ordered from said there would be an 'ideas leaflet included' but there wasn't! Anyway, I managed to work out how to use the stencils, it was a bit fiddly but well worth the effort I think. In case you are not sure what bit I'm talking about it's the purple pointy thing with the silver stitching!!!

Oh, my! That card is absolutely gorgeous, Ann! And I love the monochromatic purple you chose. The textures are truly amazing.

I hope you all aren't having the crazy weather we've had. I'm relieved to report that temps will be back in the 70's tomorrow and 70degree days are forecast through the next week or so :)
