Friend: Stamped Background

This week is quickly coming to a close and I am getting excited for the events coming this weekend.  Patrick is taking the boys camping, so I should get a lot of crafting done. I can't wait! I keep thinking I have been making a lot of cards lately but when it comes to posting, I feel there isn't a lot to choose from. Not quite sure why that is. Anyway here is my card for today:

I hand stamped the background using button stamps in clusters and then adding leaves to make them look like flowers. Then I just decided to stamp over them with a flower outline in Dark Chocolate to make them show up a bit more. This started out as an experimental stamping moment, but I liked it so much I decided to make it into a card!

Thats all for today. Quick and simple. Hope you have a good one!
