Less is more - One layer Sentiment

Here is my card for this week's Less is More.
I used labels 17 and labels 4 nesties to make a mask, sponged with memento cantaloupe  then stamped with some tiny stamps from See-Dee's whimsical garden collection and tropical collection. The sentiment is from an Inkylicious collection called Sentiments 1. I couldn't decide whether to put it straight or at an angle. I went for the angle in the end, because it was easier! What do you think? Thanks for popping by x

I love that frame you've created - must try that myself.
I think the words at an angle suit it perfectly.

Your frame is fabulous Sally!! I love the rich colors. That is such a wonderful way to frame the sentiment and keep it one layer. Well done!!

Sally, you've put a lot of work in to the construction of that beautiful frame! Love it! As for the looks great as it is~!

Mandi said...

How pretty, gorgeous effect
I think Id have chosen straight as the frame is so symmetrical, but, totally get why you did it that way. Have you every tried a stamp positioner? Chrissie did a tut for a homemade one on our Week 1
Thank you Sally
