Less is More week 163-theme

Hello everyone, I'm just back from Rock Choir and thought I'd better post my card for this week's LIM challenge which I made this morning. The theme this week is as follows:

As ever on the third Saturday of each month we have a theme for you.
This time it is for you to use 
MASKING OR STENCILLING
on your creations.
It seems that stencilling is de rigeur at the moment, so let's see what you can do.
If you don't have any stencils you could use your dies or punches to make a stencil from card or acetate.... or you could simply choose to included some masking of some description in your work.


 I inked an Imagination stencil with DI inks then over inked with versamark and embossed with clear EP. The butterfly is a MB die and the sentiment a WOW one.


 We had a great weekend in Portsmouth looking after Charlie who was as good as gold and didn't seem to mind that his parents had gone away! I did need to relax once we got home, it's full on looking after a 2 year old 24/7. The wedding next month is Lara's brother and his fiancee, Leeanna is 30 this week so I needed to make a card and decided to go with one of those new pop up box cards, come and see:



I decorated it with Anna Griffin paper and the butterfly and bird are on attached to acetate strips so they wobble :) The instructions can be found on Splitcoaststamper.
