Simple Thank You and a Backgrounder



I found some time today to play in a challenge on Splitcoaststampers. It is the Ways to Use It challenge #439. The challenge today is to make your own background or use a background stamp.
I have a very pretty background stamp sent to me by a sweet friend and this was the time to use it. I stamped my background and colored in the flowers with Copics. I added 'thank you' and did a bit of distressing around the edges and that was it. Easy Peasy!!!

Recipe:
Stamps-Stampendous/Floral Dream(background stamp), Stampabilities/Sentiments
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Bermuda Bay
Ink-Memento Bamboo Leaves and Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Copics

What a pretty gift of a background, accented with a little bit of color in those flowers.

I always have loved the background stamps by Market Street Stamps, and I just found out today that they folded! What a bummer.
