Merci



   
      On a roll with my second entry for PTI's MIM # 71: Bordered Sentiments. I am in need of some thank you cards for all the lovely gifts I received upon my retirement. So I thought why not continue with this week's challenge. My card was inspired from this card by Betsy Veldman.



     After I stamped the flowers, I used The striped IP to create some texture in the background. Because I didn't want the stripes around the bordered sentiment, I cut 2 strips of cardboard, glued them together and placed it on top of the IP where the sentiment was. This is one of those cards that turned out exactly as I had envisioned it.
   Thanks for stopping by. All comments are appreciated. They brighten up my day!
