Stamped background

Just posting another card I made for this week's challenge
Basically, just to stamp your own backgrounds for your projects.

I had a lot of fun working on this week's challenge, and had loads of ideas.  My inspiration for this card is from an actual piece of wallpaper from John Lewis:

I have a lovely thistle stamp, and I thought it would be lovely to use that in different shades of blue, so here is what I made:

for the white dots, it's actually a tiny tri-dots stamp, and I white embossed them. For the rest of the card, I distressed the edges and stamped my sentiment, and added some bling blings.

It's a very simple one layer card.  I really like it.  Thanks for stopping by.
