Enjoy the Moments

It is grey and cloudy here and it is sucking my creative mojo out of me!! So here is a pretty simple card - hey, it's all I can muster on a mojoless day!!
This is a background that I created a while ago based on THIS background technique I learned from Dina. I also had this stamped image for a long time and thought it would go well with the colors on the background. A tiny sentiment from Mixed Messages (Papertrey Ink) is a perfect fit! A little colored hemp and some dimensionals was all that was needed to finish the card.
If you haven't tried this background yet, you must!! It is such a great way to use up scraps!! I could probably make about 500 of them and still have scraps left over!! And, you must go check out all of the examples that Dina has over on her blog. She is the queen of creating beautiful cards with these backgrounds!!!

I think this is a great card. I know that you probably had an abundance of supplies for this background! You are magical with paper and leftovers. Great work.

What a wonderful card! As the mother of boys, I find that image so touching. Plus, the sentiment IS a perfect fit.

What a perfect sentiment to go with this image! Your background is awesome; I really need to try this technique since I have one of your beautiful examples in hand!!
