Experimenting with Backgrounds

 Hello!  Today I wanted to play around with backgrounds.  I decided to try a couple new things.   I sorta tried several and decided to see what they looked like when I put them together! LOL

"Hello" or "Goodbye" if you want an extra chance to win.   Our wonderful sponsors for this month are:  Sherri Baldy with her fabulous Besities and Patricia at The Paper Temptress.

Did you know you can make a coordinating floral embellishment by using your
designer paper on your card or project?    
It's Easy!
  It's Fun! 
 It will alway coordinate perfectly!

A big thank you to each of you for stopping by!
