A Happy Accident-Just Imagine!

I actually have a CAS card to share today -it started off with paint on a stencil instead of cleaning it pressed it onto card then stencilled Distressed Dots from Creative Expressions,then I was going to cut a die-cut from the center then inlay the die--BUT--because I didn't tape the die it slipped and so having watched Let Leonie Loose last week and seeing her recover from a happy accident I then cut all the odd bits off and left the aperture,layering onto blue paper then black cardstock,then stamped imagine from Crafters Companion-quite pleased with result lol.
