CASEing Yvonne

Inkspirational has a CASE challenge this fortnight, and the task is to CASE anything made by DT member Yvonne. I love Yvonne's work. I'm especially fond of her vibrant yellow colored cards, and I love how she makes the most wonderful backgrounds using stencils.
I got this Tim Holtz stencil on Saturday, along with some embossing paste, and this is my very first attempt of using either one. I decided to case this card. Along with the color scheme and the sunrays, I picked up her idea of adding stars and a non colored image.
My image is made with a stamp from Kort&Godt, the image is heat embossed with clear EP.
The sentiment is one of my favorites, it's from a Dylusions set.
I used Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey Distress Inks, and some star bling from my stash. For an added touch of sparkle I sprinkled a bit of Frantage to the background and machine stitched with a gold metallic thread around the edges.
So this card has a little bit of Yvonne's style and a little bit of mine...

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #49 CASE anything by DT member Yvonne
2) Totally Gorjuss - #221 - Sunny Colors
3) A Little Bit Crafty - Man Up
4) The Squirrel & the Fox - #62 Use embellishments
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
