SHOPPING OUR STASH #343 - Stencils

Hello crafty friends and welcome!
Time for a new challenge at

Speaking of new, check out our new banner and side bar
badge that the uber talented Lauren created!
You are da bomb!!

This week's challenge is super easy: dust off those neglected
stencils you've been hoarding and create something with them!
Here's may card:

 Here's the inside:
I bought this stencil sometime last year and, of course,
never used it until now. I applied embossing paste over it and once dry
carefully tapped my VersaMark ink pad over the raised design and
heat embossed in gold EP. I did have to retrace a few spots with the 
VersaMark pen and repeat but it turned out pretty awesome IMHO.

 Ooh! Shiny!

I thought the snarky sentiment went so well for a birthday card because
aging = C.R.S. (Can't Remember Sh*t)
(Well, at least it does for me. *wink*)
