Backgrounder Blitz


Hi, everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Here's a card I made today with images from Cornish Heritage Farms. Right now they're having a Backgrounder Blitz, and there are challenges each day to use their backgrounders! Today's challenge is a sketch challenge -- check out the details HERE. I had so much fun making this card, because I got to use my new Sultry paper from BasicGrey. It's gorgeous and had such a garden feel -- I *love* it!

To make the card, I began by stamping the Spanish Backgrounder at an angle in Pixie Pink ink over the patterned paper. The flourish and sentiment are from Beautiful, part of The Rummage Bin line. I covered the chipboard bird with another pattern from Sultry, and I added a rhinestone eye. I sponged the edges with Pixie Pink and Old Olive ink, and I embellished with a Prima flower.

I'm really happy with how it turned out -- it has such a springy look! I hope to have something else to share with you tomorrow! Thanks for visiting today -- have a great day! :)

Stamps: Spanish Backgrounder, Beautiful (CHF) Ink: Pixie Pink, Old Olive (SU!) Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink (SU!) Paper: Sultry (BasicGrey) Other: Undressed Holiday Chipboard (BasicGrey), flower (Prima) rhinestone, stamping sponge, glue dots, dimensionals
