If you need to go back to the main Country View Challenge blog and start at the beginning this is the link there.

 As you well know I love using stencils in my crafting, the difficult part for me was deciding which to use!  There are lots of inspiring projects over on the challenge page too. You can enter any craft which fits the theme.


For my first piece of the month I decided to make a card, a special card for my SIL's sister who is getting married this month. I wanted to use some bold May colours.

To make my focal I stamped and white embossed my Lili of the Valley sentiment and die cut it out.  I then dripped it through some TH distress inks
 and dried it off with my heat gun
For the backing card I repeated the process....
I then added some hearts through my stencil using archival ink
and then some diamond sparkle medium through my Gothic stencil.

Then it was time to assemble my card and add a ribbon to finish it off.



and one last shot
My second DT piece for the May challenge is on  Friday 27th...I have made a complementary tag for the "set".

I would like to link up my card with the following challenges.

   Creative Card Crew wet or dry embosssing I have white embossing powder for my sentiment.
                                          Simon Says stamp Wednesday anything goes


Don't forget to leave a comment here if you are on the blog hop....and you need to hop along to all the other blogs too if you would like try to win the Big Shot.  Good luck!

For all my other "regulars" thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments. Welcome to May and enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend.

Back soon,

Bye for now,
