Stencils in the spotlight

The spotlight challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is all about stencils this week and as I had just bought some new templates to use on the art journal I'm working on at the moment I was able to use one for my dt project, it is a Crafter's Workshop Template - Mini Birds of a Feather.
I have used Distress ink with my stencil applying the ink using some cut & dry foam. I have kept the card quite simple to try to make the stencilled image the main focus however the brightness of the ribbon is kind of defeating that purpose and I think I should maybe have used something a little less vibrant!
