The challenge this week at Create With Connie and Mary is to use the fantastic color combo of Basic Gray, Real Red, and Pumkin Pie. While I was pondering my card, I came across a technique I'd not heard of before called the "bordered sentiment." It's a fantastic way to show off a fabulous sentiment. Take a look:
I stamped the sentiment from Word Play in Basic Gray then drew lines at the top and bottom of it to create a border. I used a scrap of paper as a mask and stamped the flowers from Reason to Smile (available for a VERY special price in July). This stamp set is perfect for a little two-step stamping and these colors are to die for! I really love how this turned out. The eye is drawn to the sentiment and the masked flowers frame it so well.
Don't forget to head on over to Create With Connie and Mary and check out the challenge and the design team creations. Then use the linky tool to show us your creation. I can't wait to see what you do!
