Stamp Your Background

Another card I made with the Embellish challenge (see my previous post here). 
 I know I am really color-challenged,  but without experimenting, you just never know where this will take you, right? I was going to post this card earlier, but I was just so unsure kind of embarrassed..... I hesitated, but again, I changed my mind! This time I experimented with three stamps

and the leaf from this set, and you get unique background. The sentiment is from the SRM Stickers.
hi
It took me a long time to make this card (uhhh...I think that's a grunt)...I guess I should at least share it.  Thanks for dropping by! Something more exciting coming up tomorrow.

I like it! I hate it when you feel unsure of a card especially when you spend a lot of time on it! I am glad you shared this as I like it! I like how you used the middle of the flower in the other flower!

Wowsers. Now just excuse me for a moment while I pick my jaw up from the floor.
This is such a special one-of-a-kind card - that background is to-die-for! Gorgeous. Rx
