Today I've got a Happy Birthday card for you. I made my own background for this card so I can enter it in the CAS-UAL Fridays CFC92: Wallpaper (Stamp you own background) HERE. I started out with a piece of white paper and ended up with this:
I inked the edges and into the middle of the paper with some distress ink (Tea Dye) and then used the flower from the Fresh Squeezed Stamp set of Soda-Lighted for my background image. After I inked my stamp, I stamped the image on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped it on my card for a more muted look. I believe that's what's known in the crafting world as "stamping off??"
I've never used this flower stamp before and I think it's so cute. Therefore, I'm going to be entering my card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - The Stamp You Love (But Don't Use) Challenge HERE.
I'm also entering it in Simon Says - Anything Goes challenge HERE because this is pretty much anything, so it's going! :)
Go get your craft on!
