Roses Fade, but Thank You is Forever...

It's Monday of Presidents' Week, which means the rugrat is not in school and I'm tearing my hair out trying to entertain him! To decompress, I made a card, my favorite kind, which is Thank You. I brought out two of my go-to sets from Taylored Expressions, New Beginnings and Banner Day 1 to create a simple card (no time means quick card!)
I took on of the cute butterfly images and stamped it several times, fully inked, then again in an adjoining pattern by de-inking it once between stamping. It's a great way to create some patterned background paper. Next, I stamped and shaded the sentiment banner and rose, also shading the edges of my card base. After popping them up with foam tape, I was ready to get back to amusing a very bored three year old!

Such a nice card. I always forget to "make" my background... especially when I'm out of a perticular color of DSP.... why not just ink it? TFS..
