HLS CAS challenge

Hi Everyone,

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Ours was very quiet - I still need to rest. However, I thought I should give card making a try :)))

I am so behind with my holiday cards, so what better than go and make some quickies. And stencilling is the way to do it!

I used Wendy Vecchi's gold embossing paste, as well as regular white one for the top star. The sentiment is by Neat&Tangled from a set I recently won. Thank you Neat&Tangled! Added some sequins. 

Little Angel

I used a stitched die from Simon Says Stamps to cut my black panel. mounted it with fun foam.

And the good news - iStencil has a big sale going on  - go and get yourself some goodies!
