Bordered Sentiments

The challenge at Make It Mondays this week is called Bordered Sentiments.  It is one of my favorite techniques: when you take the masking off the sentiment, it's like magic to see the finished card!  I chose to make my card completely 1-layer; no embellishments at all:

Bordered Sentiments

I used PTI's Garden Variety II for my sentiment and Flower Fusion #6 for the smallest pink flower and the black dots.

  15. What a great technique and a wonderful card. Love that sentiment and how you set it off with that great, yet unusual, color combo. Doesn't need a single embellishment - this is so rich!
