Stencil It - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
I am one very tired girlie and so in need of my holiday. I only have two long shifts to work and then I have 8 lovely days off & as much as I love my job I cannot wait to have a break. I realised the other day that except for the few weeks compassionate leave to look after hubby after his stroke that I haven't actually had proper holiday leave since last October & I don't even care what the weather is like I just want some time to chill out, play in my craft room & catch up with friends & family.

On to today's card -

& this week our challenge is
My lovely teamies and I are featuring The Crafters Workshop products on our creations this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge.
I have dusted off some of my Magnolia's that I hadn't got around to using before & inked them up for today's card. I am not usually a messy inky girl but I wanted to feature two fabulous stencils & I have inked one using Vintage Photo distress ink & applied Gesso to the other for a nice textured look.

The copic colours I've used are -
 skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair E44, E43, E41, dress - W6, W4, W2, W0, cross - C3, C1, C00, shoes & bow - W5, W3, W1, rose - RV95, RV93, RV91 / YG99, YG95, YG93, flowerpot - E19, E15, E13, tree - G99, G94, G43

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
