ABC Challenges - Stamped Background

Hello dear friends and followers and Happy Monday to you!  Our challenge this week at ABC Challenges is to make a card using your own stamped background (instead of patterned paper). I promptly grabbed this flower from a Stampin Up! (SU) set called "Blooming with Kindness" and a new SU 2013-14 in-color called Strawberry Slush.  I stamped the flowers randomly (trying especially not to be too perfect with where I placed them) on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and then sponged around the edges with another new SU in-color called Baked Brown Sugar (don't both of these colors have yummy names?).  The Strawberry Slush color comes out pinker when stamped on white and a little bit more coral when stamped on vanilla (cream) - I really like it alot!  Then sentiment is also from a new SU set called "Really Good Greetings".

This card is going to a friend who is experiencing some challenging times right now.  On the inside I have put the sentiment "Thank God for what you Have...Trust God for what you Need" .  I hope she likes it and that it makes her feel a bit better. It's nice to know when someone is in your corner - especially God.

I hope you will find time to join our challenge this week at ABC Challenges.  This is a fun one as really the sky is the limit with what you use to stamp your background. I have a feeling we are going to see some amazing and creative cards this week.  The rest of our DT members have prepared some beautiful cards to share with you as well - so please go visit them here.

Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D
