I met a stamper this week who said that she gets frustrated with finding the perfect background paper, and I told her that I often stamp my own background paper and this was met with a blank stare, followed by, "Huh?"
There is nothing like seeing it for yourself, so that is why I made the card I did today. I did this one as a hybrid, with printed background paper in the background and stamped paper with the numbers.
And on my Facebook Page today (later today) I will share with you a different way to do it with the same stamp set.
I started with Polka Dots (because I LOVE them) to pick my first color for the card, Real Red (yummy!) and then grabbed other bright colors, I pulled in Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, and then the Fabulous Gumball Green and viola! there was my color palette.
