I'm having a ton of fun using MFT Stencils lately.  I signed up for Stenciled - the latest class from Online Card Classes and I'm so excited to use all of the stencils I've been collecting.  I did a little embossing with MPD Petal Pattern.

I created the background by running a square of Pink Lemonade Card Stock through my Vagabond with the MPD Petal Pattern Stencil and the thin Embossing Pad.  I placed the stencil back over my embossed paper and then lightly sponged some Pink Lemonade Ink over the stencil, creating a tone on tone look.

I used the flowers from Blueprints 12 Die-namics and cut them out in Smooth White Card Stock, then lightly sponged the petals with Pink Lemonade Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Essential Sentiments in Black Licorice Ink and then placed the flowers beside it.

That's it for now.  The Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more to show you.  Please hop on over and see:
