Dotty Birthday Wishes card using stencil and texture paste

Hi Crafty Friends,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Lucky all of you who have just started summer, I wish I was there! We have just started our winter and boy is it cold already (for Australian standards, perhaps not compared to some of your winters). 

I have a few cards to post, I do like to post them all at the same time so I hope you don't mind seeing a few of my posts in a row. Then I go quiet for a few days lol. 

I have been playing with my stencils and texture paste again for this card. I let it dry then put the stencil back on and inked over the raised areas with my oxide ink in worn lipstick. I also inked up the card top and bottom to compliment the dots. I silver embossed the sentiment and used my grey/black glitter washi tape for the borders. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar - celebrations
