PTI ~ Make-It Monday Stenciled Edges

Hello ~  I've got a quick post with the card I made for this week's PTI ~ Make-it Monday challenge.
Lizzie showed us a great technique for creating stenciled edges on our cards.  I like this technique and have done it before, but I never think of using it so I'm glad she reminded me of it.
I used one of the stencils from the Garden Gate Make-it Market kit for the stenciling around the edges.  I love the flowers from Seasonal Borders: Spring!  It took a few times to line them up properly, but in the end they came out ok.  I used the same Layered Banner Die that Lizzie used.
You can join in on the fun here.

I'll also be adding this card to the following challenges:
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Spring Flowers
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!
