Heartfelt Thanks

ABC Challenges has a great challenge for us this week - participants are to make cards with stamped backgrounds. How fun!?!?!? That's actually sort of how I did things when I first started stamping - before I discovered my love for designer paper. Sooooo... this was like going "old school" for me. And I enjoyed the experience!

I actually dug out two very old Stampin' UP! stamp sets for this card. The flowers are from the set Definitely Decorative Daisy (2000). This is a 2-step stamp set. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Thanks (2005). They needed to see ink. It had been a while since I'd used them.

I added some buttons to the center of the flowers.

And of course I had to do a little something inside:

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's ABC Challenges Stamped Background Challenge!

May 20 - 26
