A happy background

Make your own background...The current SSS Wednesday challenge  is asking for backgrounds and I did just that with some MFT stamps from Desert Bouquet and a couple from Clearly Besotted's Sunburst set.  
The SSS Work it Wednesday challenge is calling for STAMP IT!  
I had a lot of fun arranging these little clusters of ferns and florals and also added a tiny outline heart and super tiny trio of flowers from PTI.  The sentiment is Hero Arts and I stamped in Versamark onto vellum CS and heat embossed with Ranger white.  That vellum panel was tacked down with glossy accents under the sentiment and folded over the stamped white panel and finally secured to a Melon Berry panel.  I used Sage, Melon Berry, Lemon Tart and chocolate brown...oh and Regal Rose for the heart.  The vellum panel looks warped in the photo, but not so much in person.  Strange...
Thanks for stopping in!

  4. Such a lovely background, Chriss ... your little floral clusters are so pretty! Love that you used the vellum for your sentiment panel ... it's soft and delicate like the blooms ... and allows them to shine through beautifully! Hugs, Anita :)
