Got through that set (New Pines) #51

This card is a little different for sizing.  It will fit in a regular letter envelope.  Size is 5 3/4 x 3.  Some stamps just lend themselves to be back ground stamps.  I took that double image of the pine cones and used a light touch with Sage Shadow ink and stamping off.  I love this BIG BOLD sentiment from MFT and this sentiments set was free with a purchase a couple of months back.  I just love this sentiment.  The green pines set it off nicely.  I sponged the edges with distress ink.  The touch of black ribbon is a scrap.  I keep a little container with pieces like this and they add a nice little touch of contrast.  I am entering this into this weeks challenge at Simon Says Anything Goes.
