Less is More 163...I Love You

Oops....I missed the challenge:(...I'm a bit too late...well here's my card, anyway:)!!
I used my love of rainbows and embossing paste to make a card for  Less is More  where the challenge this week is to mask or stencil.
My background was masked AND a stencil...do I get extra credit for using both?!  FUN...
 I used strips of rainbow colored paper (very thin strips) adhered to some thin white paper and die cut this sentiment from Penny Black.  I layered it 4 times for depth with glossy accents.  I used a stencil from Simon Says Stamp with hearts and lines for my background border.  I masked off just two rows of hearts and used some translucent embossing paste to make a barely seen border for the sentiment.  Here, you can see it a bit better...

 The inside was a must for my card, a sentiment from a much loved Simon Says Stamp set...
Hope you have an amazing weekend!! Hugs!! Lisa
