Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #201 Challenge & Simon Says Stamp’s Texture Challenge

This week’s Make It Monday Challenge for Papertrey Ink is to create a stencil from a cover plate die with embossing paste and Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge is to add a little texture.  I used both of these challenges to create this card.  I used Papertrey’s cover plate to make my stencil.  I only have one cover plate to use on PTI’s challenge, but it is a well-loved one.  This cover plate works so well for so many types of cards.  I made my stencil from it using 2 pieces of cardstock and then created green embossing paste using PTI’s new leaf ink.  After waiting for the embossing paste to dry, I added sequins for cream flowers, a brown tree trunk, and a sentiment tag.  Hope you have a great weekend and get some crafting time in!  Supplies are listed below.
