CCM 125 It’s Only Words

Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time around is a sentiment based one. We would like to see your creations with the sentiment prominently displayed, or as the main focal point. We have  a lovely stamp and some card candi as a prize.

125 It's Only Words

My card was for one of those sad occasions, the death of a neighbour. My sentiment is an Anna Griffin stamp. Dies are from Spellbinders. I drew a border around the inside of the first mat to frame the sentiment as it seemed a little lost in the middle of that white die cut without it.
