Background Stamping ... oh my!

 I adore creating my own background patterned paper by using stamped images ... and this sweet little creation is no exception!!!  Enjoy :)

I used the Creating With Vintage Patterns CD and the Love Mail Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets for the pieces in my design that have pre-printed patterns!  I love that sweet little ticket!!

Next I merrily set to work creating a background patterned paper for the base of my card using these beautiful sets from Crafty SecretsGrand Greetings, Birds of Happiness (<-- I got to create some of the sentiments for this set!), Let's Hang Out, Born to Fly, Artsy Banners, Cupcake Party and Card Sentiments. 

And finally, I used a couple of my favorite dies from Papertrey Ink to complete this cutie pie -- Signature Series: Dress Form and Banner Builder Collection!!

Thanks for peeking in today ... hope you're having a wonderful, relaxing weekend filled with lots of scrappy, stampy time!!
