A Mask Isn't Just for Halloween

Hello Everyone.  I made this card using a masking techique.  The "frame" on the main image was created using one of my Nesties.  First I inked up the French Script background stamp in River Rock ink and stamped it onto Very Vanilla cardstock (look closely, it's pretty subtle).  I then took the shape I cut out with the Nestie and placed it over the center of the Vanilla cardstock.  I sponged River Rock ink all around the perimeter of the shape, creating the pretty frame.  I then inked up the plant image from Kind and Caring Thoughts in Always Artichoke and stamped it on top of the sponged frame.  The sentiment is from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set.  I used the word window punch to add a little interest.  A couple of brads and Artichoke seam binding ribbon complete this one. 
Thanks for stopping by.
