Hero Arts Online Classes on Stenciling drew winners from comments left on their blogs, and I was one of them--YAY!  Classes started today, so I wasted no time in putting the new information to good use on this card.

Since I don't have any stencils, I made one of my own from a Martha Stewart stars punch and a scrap piece of cardstock.  After sponging the stars onto the white panel, I added the "Birthday" die cut, the "wishes" and some extra stars from a small punch.  The embossed zig-zag line on the bottom is from a Sizzix border ef.  Now that it's mounted on a card front, I'm entering it in the Sweet and Sassy challenge HERE!

I'm on a roll!

I love your stenciled card, Doris. So pretty! I've been making some of my own stencils with punches and heavy duty plastic packaging. I make sure I round the corners on the plastic, so it doesn't cut me. I've only used the stencils for journals, but after seeing your card I realize I need to try some cards too.

Congratulations on winning the class!!! Sounds like a good one. Blessings and hugs!!!
