It's a Jungle Out There!

The Dreamweaver Stencils© challenge for the month of May is "Flora and Fauna!"  For my take on this fun challenge I've used LG 756 Open Elephant and three of the new dies, DD003 Leafy Branch, DD002 Monstera Leaf and DM2001 Petite Fern.  It was fun putting this one together!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Sentiment - Pure Innocence™ Stamp Set
Martha Stewart® Grass Edge Punch
Bazzill® Cardstock
Neenah® Classic Crest™
Tim Holtz® Distress Ink™ - Antique Linen
Memento™ Tuxedo Black

Here how I created this card:

Tint a small amount of white embossing paste with gray paint
Tape down stencil and paste emboss, remove stencil and set aside to dry
While pasted piece is drying, create card base with a tent fold
Die cut all three dies with a few different green papers
Trim patterned paper for background
Punch grass edge and stamp sentiment
Trim pasted piece to desired size and ink with distress ink
Adhere all papers and die cuts as shown

This was such an easy card to create and I love how it turned out!  I hope you like it, too!  Here's the links for the rest of the team posting today.  We have some new members to the Dream Team so be sure to welcome them and leave them some love!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I do hope you'll come again soon!  Have a wonderful day!
