PTI Make It Monday #42:Layered Background with Sentiment Stamps

It's Monday again and that means another Make It Monday challenge. After watching the video that Betsy provided for this weeks MIM, I decided to the plunge and make one of my own.  I decided to continue on with the holiday theme and ink up my set of PTI Holiday Lights stamp set.  This set has so many possibilities and I am really looking forward to using it for Valentine's Day cards as well. 
This card uses a few different techniques that were fun to do.  First I inked the edges in spring moss and then stamped off twice before stamping the sentiments on the fillable frames to give a subtle look.  I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in red and centered it on a beautiful snowflake die that my friend Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea was sweet enough to share with me.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Solid Card Stock: PTI - Pure Poppy, White and Simply Chartreuse
