Sweet 'n Sassy Release Celebration - Delightfully Delicate Background

Welcome to DAY 2 of our February Release Blog Hops!

Today the DT is thrilled to share the new Delightfully Delicate Backgroundwith you.  This gorgeous image is a seamless background stamp that can be used to make as large a background as you wish!  You'll love the dainty touch it adds to your projects!

For today's card, I used a pearly white embossing powder and stamped the image on black cardstock...beautiful!  And since the background image was so pretty I didn't want to cover it up so I just added a sentiment (more on that later!), which has been stamped over the Typewriter Text background and two sweet butterflies from the Monarch Dies set, which coordinates with the Majestic Monarchs stamp set.
  
 Image measures approximately 3.75" x 3.75
Stamp is $11

Beautiful card. The stamp really pops off the card with the white embossing. I agree that it didn't need a lot more added to it after the embossing. Great job.

This is so beautiful! I love the embossed background. Does the pearly white powder have that blueish tone to it? I have never heard of that powder but I like how it has a blue tone on your card.

Love the embossing! It really makes this stamp look quite regal. I like how you didn't cover it up, too.
