Ghost Masking

 I had fun digging through my unused floral images looking for the perfect image for this new Technique Junkies technique- alas- this 'retired' SU set chosen.

   I used to love this Roses set and used it alot- the sentiment is from another 'retired' SU set. This is a flat card- no dimension except for the back layer. I added some sponging around the edges for added dimension.  I had to add some stitching to finish off the edges.
