Make It Monday #71: Bordered Sentiments

Betsy has a fabulous video for MIM this week.  Check it out HERE.  I decided to pull out a Christmas sentiment:  Stylish Sentiments:  Holiday and my Peaceful Poinsettia sets...the designer paper on the side is from Basic grey, Nordic Holiday.  Instead of drawing a line above and below the sentiment, I used the MS scoring tool to make the two lines.
Thanks for taking a look.
