Guest designing for Virginia's View challenge + give-away!

Hello crafty friends!

I guess most of you already know Virginia's View Challenge? Virginia is a super talented, suportive cardmaker who's started her own challenge some time ago. And it was a big hit, because her challenges are inspiring and Virginia is well known in the cardmaking world.

I think she was the first international cardmaker who ever left a comment on my blog and I still remember the proud feeling then. She motivated me from the very start and encouraged me to go further.
I feel honored to be guest designing at Virginia's View Challenge today.

We are giving away a stamp set and a stencil to one of the winners, so make sure to play along and win some Create A Smile goodies!
This month Virginia's View Challenge is all about CAS creations.

This is the card that I made, using the Swirly Stencil and the Comfy stamp set with a sentiment from Für Alle Fälle:

We all know stencils are inexpensive and yet versatile. You can get even more out of them if you only use parts of your stenciled background. In this case I cut a piece follwoing the stenciled lines - I think it turned our quite nice ;)
The sentiment says "time to smile".

What's your favorite technique with stencils? How o you get most out of them? Thanks for sharing your ideas!

Now it's time for YOU to create CAS creations for Virginia's View challenge. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
