mail it monday - one of a kind ink blended birthday card

for the second day in a row, the inspiration wheel landed on stencil as the theme. this is a theme that i am really enjoying because i have so many options! stencils really are such a versatile tool and can be altered in a variety of ways - color choice, medium used, direction, etc. while somewhat basic, they are one of my favorite tools to use when making my handmade cards.
