Daring Card Makers - Stencilled Green - Spring

Welcome to a new Daring Card Makers challenge!  The theme for the week is:

Stencilled Green - Spring

This took me out of my comfort zone and spent some time trying to decide what I was going to do.  I already had some spray inks that had been donated to me by a fellow crafter who was having a clear out, however there wasn't a green!  So I bought one specially for the challenge!  So this one is Lime Burst Cosmic Shimmer.

I used the Hello Sentiment die from Polkadoodles and cut it 3 times, glued it together so I had a decent and study stencil.  I then placed it on the card panel and sprayed!  Quite pleased how it turned out as I was expecting a disaster on my first attempt!

I found some acrylic not quite clear flowers in my stash so I've added them along with some silver balls I also found.  To finish, I've inked the edge of the panel with distress inks and then layered it onto the card blank.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
