Time for some dancing!  This adorable image is a recent release from Conie Fong!  This bundle, Dancing Emily, is perfect for so many different occasions and especially great for this time of year as we blow off the dandelions! This set comes in JPG and PNG formats!  

I'm having a little fun playing with homemade stencils and textures in my journal today!  

I have used the Dancing Emily image and printed her and the sentiment from the bundle on X-Press It Blending Card.  I used my Cricut to cut a mask to cover her and then got out my stencils.  I layered up the inks.  

I then came in with some Versa Mark embossing ink and and swiped the edges of the card.  After sprinkling some blue embossing powder I hit it with a heat gun and then repeated the steps using a brown/copper colored powder.  

I backed the piece with a dark purple from DCWV and then adhered it to my page.  There is a bit of ribbon slipped between the layers!  This page is finished off with a few little gems.
