Hiding how I'm thinking of you

I almost forgot Darnell was having 3 NBUS challenges in a row this month - the second being posted this past Monday.  SO glad I realized and got a card done in time!
I did use one of her optional elements in my card design:  1.  The first optional theme I used this week is a NBUS Technique called "Hidden Word" or "Camouflaged Word" or, if you want to get technical "Steganography."
 My NBUS is this piece of paper from a K and Co Amy Butler paperpad.  I've used other papers from this pad - but none of this one.  I also used word dies from a thinlit die set - I've used other words from this set but not these.
I die cut the words twice out of Simply Chartreuse card stock and once out of the panel of DP.  I glued all three layers together with the DP on the top - then adhered the thick words into the cut out on the DP that I had already adhered to the card .  I added a little matboard heart that I colored by inking it with Simply Chartreuse.

You'll find this week's NBUS challenge here.
Also linking my card to:
Happy Little Stampers 
Darnell is having surgery today -  so the sentiment on this card is going out to her through cyber space - as well as prayers and hugs!  Best wishes today Sis!!

I don't know how you line up the sentiment with the design paper so perfectly?! It's not cut from the design paper, is it?

Yay, I'm glad you remembered, sis! I love your mono chrome hidden word card using that gorgeous shade of green! I so appreciate you making it for me and your special message to me here, as well as your comments and emails. I'm doing really well, considering ~ just way behind!
