I had fun playing with some new color combo's for me for a Valentine card. I played with pink and brown and I like it. I stamped the background with a small heart stamp from Raisin Boats stamp set Playing Cupid I stamped it diagonally on the paper starting in the middle and working my way out on each side. I find this helps to keep it even yet look random.I sponged the edge with the brown Momento ink,I embossed the brown paper with a fun embossing folder by sizzix and then cut it and used a corner rounder , I cut a pink mat a bit bigger and then also used the corner rounder on it. I edged the pink with a sponge and brown ink also.I also cut a stripe of pink and sponged the edge of it with brown ink and then added a fun pink gingham ribbon I added this to the middle of the card and then the mats. I stamped a cute little cat from Raisin Boats stamp set Wild about Ewe Honey. I colored it with copic markers, I cut it out and then attached it to the mats with foam tape.
I hope you find some time to play with your stamps to make your own background for the challenge over at Moxi Fab.
