Words with Brad Accents

Here's an interesting focal that combines purchased elements with pretty scalloped mats. 

The words were from a sentiments on vellum type of pack.  Obviously I cut around them with my Nestability die in my Big Shot machine. and then cut a couple of progressively larger mats. 

A scrap of patterned paper makes a great border - especially with the narrow brown borders added.

The shaped brads make nice replacements for the dots of the "i"s, as well as an easy way to attach the vellum to the mats.
