Less is More 59...masking

The challenge this week at Less is More is to make a card using the masking technique.  I don't do much masking...in fact almost none, so I went with something super simple:
I used three different sets from Papertrey Ink...the frame is from Framed, the branch/leaves/flowers from Out On a Limb and the sentiment from Daily Designs Sentiments.  I stamped the frame and masked part of the bottom opening to make it larger for the sentiment.  After stamping the frame, I put post it notes on the left side of the frame and stamped the branch twice with different lengths and the flowers.  I then stamped the leaves, and then the sentiment and embossed that.  The frame, branch and sentiment were stamped in Early Espresso , the flowers in Pretty in Pink and the leaves in Certanly Celery.  I dotted the flowers with pink Perfect Pearls.  Loving these challenges...always keeping me on my toes and making me think:)!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
