A simple CASE

Hello everyone, a new week. I am posting after few days, was busy hunting for a black dress over the weekend. My daughter is going to perform with her school band during Christmas, and she needs a black formal dress, very hard to find...looked all over the city, and couldn't find one for a 13+ slim girl. So mummy dear designed the dress(I love making dresses), and is getting it custom made, fingers crossed big time for the dress to come out good. The local tailor can't speak English, so needed some broken Cantonese, my daughter's Mandarin, and my tailoring language to let the tailor know how want it to be done *phew*

I made this card on Saturday evening, and finally found time to post it.
It is a simple one layer card. I started by masking the card. I used distressed inks - forest moss, and crushed olive to ink the bamboo stencil. I bought this in India. I sprayed some mist over the stencil. Stamped the sentiment from Hero Art- things we love.

Linking this with:

TIME OUT challenge
I was inspired by the stenciled panel, the sentiment going over the image, and green color here.

Muse Challenge #142
I was inspired by the leaves, and the panel, and the sentiment hanging over the image.
