less is more take 2

Yes that's right two posts in one day, this is becoming a bit of a weekend habit!

I've enjoyed the Less is More challenge so much this week, that I've decided to have another go at it. Stampin' up! has some really nice sentiment stamps so it was really hard to choose which to use yesterday, so I thought that I'd have another go at it with a different sentiment, this time from Occasional Greetings, this set is so useful, it has something for nearly every occasion, and this sentiment is my favourite from it.

Again like with yesterdays card I've stamped then masked off the sentiment, so that the leaves look like they are behind it. I also decided to stamp the leaves, from the Autumn Splendor set off the edge to tie it all in together. What do you think?

The recipe
Stamps, Occasional greetings, Autumn splendor
Paper, whisper white CS
Ink, More mustard, Wild wasabi, Cherry cobbler, chocolate chip
Accessories, post-it note, stamp-a-ma-jig

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Another super one Kelly.
I'm trying to decide whether a regular shaped mask (rectangle, circle etc)might have worked more effectively to to give the focus to the sentiment rather than the one which just echoes the outlined shape!
What do you think?
