SHOPPING OUR STASH #397 - Stencil Me This

Hello and welcome crafty friends!
Donna is hosting this fortnight's challenge at
and she's picked stencils as your muse! 

For my card, I've used a stencil that I bought at least a year ago and,
of course, this is the first time using it. (cough *hoarder* cough)

here's the inside:

I blended three colors of green ink into the tread stencil for an ombre' look.
Then stamped the motorcycle and sentiment, matted it, and popped it
on with foam squares. Another simple sentiment finishes the inside,
and now I have another guy card ready to be sent! Yay!

I hope that you find some time to play along with our stencil
challenge at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see
what you create in our gallery. Thanks for 
dropping by, and I hope that you have a great day!
