Happy Wednesday! I have a friend who just found out she was pregnant with her first child so I wanted to make a card to congratulate her. :)

I started by cutting different size circle masks out of sticky notes. Then I used the negative (positive?) portion to stick to the card and layered a stencil on top. After the first one, I put the circle part of the mask back in, removed the negative part and put a different size circle mask overlapping the first one and repeated with a different stencil. I did that for three circles in all. Then I used small sunburst stamps in the same colors to extend the design to the top and bottom. I die cut the sentiment several times and then glued them together. I used the same gray ink to color the sentiment and then used sparkle embossing powder to give it a shiny look. I added a few sequins and trimmed the sides of the front panel so I could adhere it to some colored cardstock to finish off the card.

Inks: Distress Oxide (pistachio & iced spruce); ME (blush)
Stencils: HA (stars, cubic backgrounds); N&T (hexastar)
Stamps: CB (sunburst)
Die: Tim Holtz (celebration script)
Sequins: Doodlebug
