Make it Monday - masking

Just popping in here briefly before heading out on children's taxi service duties! I wanted to share I card I made for this weeks PTI Make It Monday challenge. The challenge was to use dies as a masking tool. I cut a large and a medium flower from beautiful blooms dies and used the negative space as masks for stamped sentiments.

For the medium flower I stamped various "happy" sentiments from my collection and then for the large flower I did the same but with "birthday" sentiments. Before lifting the mask I used a paper piercer to highlight the edges of the mask. I love how bright and fresh this card feels. A bit of twine and a few fab buttons from The Ribbon Girl and I called it done. A totally one layer card!

I'm also going to post this over to A Passion For Papertrey's spring challenge.

Great idea, Debby! Love how you used the happy sentiments on one flower and the birthday on the other. Plus the piercing around the flowers really sets them apart.
