For the background I did what for me is unthinkable - I cut into the middle of a sheet of cs! You probably cannot even see it here, but there is a subtle map - the US, Mexico and Central America are just to the left of the image. I wanted some of the ocean visible - but it is not clear at all. Oh, well. I used ribbon at the top and washi tape along the bottom. The sentiment is raised with pop dots.
