Vintage Backgrounds

I made this for the release party last week over at Stamp TV and can I say Nina has done it again? She is so very creative in her illustrations and Vintage Backgrounds is the perfect compliment to one's stamp collection. I used two different backgrounds from the set for this card: the polka dot (which is so way cool) and the word background (which just happens to be Scripture verses). Do you see how the label from Lovely Labels matches the polka dot background? Eeks, I love being "matchy~matchy," as Linda calls it, lol! I am a child of the 80's...and one day all of that is coming back! The sentiment is from the new Free with Three stamp set Masculine Messages. I stamped the Turquoise Sea cardstock flower pieces with the backgrounds as well and kept the colors to Kraft, Turquoise Sea and Black Oynx. Now I know this is a little bright and out of my normal color scheme...but it's growing on me!

It has been a busy few days in my household and stamping time is hard to come by. I do have some things I have been working on, but can't share quite yet :o) However... I have a fun announcement coming soon...I am so excited and can't wait to share!!! But mum is the word for now :o)

Fun announcement? Oh, this sounds good! Can't wait to find out what it is! Your card is beautiful! I know what you mean about it being bright--it's not my favorite color choice either but we can appreciate it though, can't we? :)
