Sunshine and Snails Stampin' B's

Vicky Gould is hostess this week of the Stampin B's Design Team and asked that we create our own background-no designer paper, only stamps. As you can see, I have made my card very sunny using several stamps. I first stamped my  white cardstock with a stamp called Speckles in SU Apricot Appeal, then stamped my sun with SU Crushed Curry, embossed with clear embossing powder, heated, and then sponged the entire background with the  Apricot Appeal, making the sun images pop out.
I popped up the back side of my snail after paper piecing with green and white houndstooth. I also used a houndstooth embossing folder and googly eyes.

We hope you'll join our challenge this week. If so, use the inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog.
