Stencilled CAS for challenge #226 at QKR Stampede

This is my card for DT inspiration at the weekly challenge at QKR Stampede - CAS (clean and simple).  Check out the examples by the rest of the design team members, and join us for a chance to win QKR digital images - there are so many cute ones, as well as sentiments.  You may enter up to 3 times before 6 p.m. EST on Thursday.  The new QKR image I chose is Floating Away.  It is colored with Prismas, and fussy cut to adhere to the card.  I used a die cut for the sentiment.
 If you have seen a few of my entries you probably realize that CAS is not my usual style - in fact, it is a technique I find a bit intimidating.  I seem to have this need to fill that blank space!  Using this stencil took care of that need. I tried something new (to me) by using various shades of black chalk to stencil in the border. I have had both chalk and stencil for a long time, but don't often use them.
Hope to see you at QKR stampede!
