Background Stamping

I always like to create my own background. with stamps. I love how you can make various color combo to match with the image that you want to focus on. This week's challenge at Penny Black is "Background Stamping". I do not own any background stamps, so I used thinking of you to make my own.
The flower border was the backdrop for the tulips which was stamped in Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.
Thinking of you
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday. I have yet another exciting blog week planned. See you soon! Have you heard? There will be a NEW card challenge blog in town!! Super exciting! You can Facebook Lily Pads Card and be their friends here.

Looking at your card, I feel like I'm sitting outside a café on the Left Bank in Paris enjoying a café latté and maybe chatting with Alexia. TFS ;-)
