Congrats

I saw a sketch at Inkspirational this morning, and I immediately thought of my background stamps.


The floral background is from the In the Background stamp set, and the argyle/harlequin is from Fabulous You.  The sentiment is from the For Always Card Making Workshop on the Go set, and I stamped it twice in order to pop up the "congrats" portion of the sentiment.  I've used champagne and cashmere ink for this card, so I added some interest by adding black organdy ribbon and hat pins from my stash.  I enjoy using my stamps to make my own background paper.  With forty colors in the CTMH palette, it's easy to create a look that's all your own!

Other challenges I will be entering this card into are:

Brenda, this background is genius! I love how you used a floral stamp mixed with a more funky stamp, giving such a unique background. Plus the colours give it a kinda of grungy/vintage look. I LOVE IT! Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational x

I really love how you let the background take center stage. The color is quiet and subtle but the background "texture" is amazing! Perfectly touched off with the tulle and hat pins. This is now my #1 fav of yours!
