Wishing You A Happy Day

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #366 is up on the blog for the current week of Monday, April 27 through Sunday evening, May 3, 2020. I was also planning to enter my card into a Tictactoe Challenge but it closed today at noon in another time zone meaning I missed the deadline.
On a panel of white cardstock, using stencils, I sponged pink clouds then the yellow butterflies. This stenciled panel was added to a gray panel and then to a light gray card base. The tag was made from die-cut labels and adhered with foam tape. A silver cord was added to the tag along with a small stamped sentiment. A metallic gem was placed in the upper right corner and inside the card was lined with white cardstock and decorated with lightly stenciled yellow butterflies.
