Make It Monday #42: Layered Background with Sentiment Stamps

Hello and Happy Saturday!

Well, the front door decorations are up and the Christmas  tree is in the living room.  We'll get to decorating it tonight after dinner.  For now, I have a card to show you that I have wanted to make since the release of Bells and Boughs.  When I saw the stamp set, I immediately recalled a sentiment from Inside and Out: Holiday and wanted to pair up the two, so this MIM challenge is exactly what I have been waiting for.  AND I got to use a product that is new for me.  Flower Soft makes border stickers that can be peeled off and cut to the length you need.  There are quite a few in the package and a good variety to choose from. It provides a very delicate detail but I like it applied here around the background layer.  Here's the card:
