My original idea was to stencil the letters and then cover them with the fussy-cut colorful leaves. Once I started laying it out, though, I could see it wasn't going the way I wanted it to. So I decided to create the stenciled letter windows instead. I'm REALLY pleased with the results! I'll show you a close-up if you promise to not be too tough on my craft knife skills! HA!
