You are absolutely fabulous!

Do you find background stamp hard to use? Or perhaps it can be a bit overwhelming? I think it's a great idea to tackle it bit by bit if you do not feel like using it entirely.  Here is a card that I used only tiny part of the stamp!

See the possibilities? You will never run out of sentiment!
I don't think I had posted any card that I made with canvas yet. The white canvas ATC  by Rangers is a lot of fun to stamp on. I bought mine with the 50% off coupon from Michael's! I am linking this up to Simon Says Stamps (Anything Goes) Challenge.
you sare absolutely fabulous
I colored the background with Distress Crackle Paint (Antique Linen) and then stamped Pom Pom Flower, colored with a white Prisma pencil.  This stamp True Friends is absolutely fabulous, don't you think?

And YOU, my fellow card-making friends/bloggers/followers/readers are absolutely fabulous for leaving me such kind words time after time. I do not take the comments for granted! Thank you!
