Life is not...

Today's challenge on The House That Stamps Built is called: "You have a way with words." We want you to use words as you focal point on whatever project you choose to create.
 I wanted to share a fun technique for breaking up your sentiment when it doesn't fit the space you want to fill! For this card I used 6113-K, Life is not... and stamped the top half on red cardstock, cutting out each line of words and fitting them into the square I created with spellbinders nestabilities. I inked up the second half of the sentiment and added it to a label inside my card.
(If you'd like to make a torn paper flower but don't know how - visit this post for a mini tutorial.)

Oh what a great way to use sentiments that just don't fit in your space - will remember this idea. Love how you finished the inside of your card as well. So many different ideas with this challenge.
