One Layer Wednesday (OLW) - Variations On a Sentiment

Leave it to Susan R. to create a real tricky One Layer Wednesday challenge #72.  She wants us to use a sentiment and nothing else on a non-standard sized card!  Wow, now that is a challenge!!  At first I pulled out the largest sentiments I have ... but then I got creative and created these:

They are mini scraplings ... 1" x 3" little mini cards.  I keep lots of these small little cards around the office to leave on the desks of my co-workers on their birthdays.  The ones I have at work right now are all girly cards so I was stuck last week when one of our tech guys had a birthday!  These will make great additions to the stash and will be perfect for the guys!!

Thanks Susan for a real challenge, like usual!!
