Make Your Own Background with Stamps

Hello! This card was made for a challenge to make your own background with stamps and I tied in some other elements from other challenges.  To make my background, I stamped a GKD flower design all over  pink cardstock with Versamark  and gold embossed.  After trimming this paper, I attached to the gold card base and attached the prepared  image and sentiment that were stamped on white CS and also gold embossed.  I edged the cut image and sentiment with Versamark ink and also embossed with gold EP since my Gold pen that I use for edges has dried up.  This was a fairly quick and easy card. The color of the flowers and paper match better in real life.  I always have trouble capturing the true color of pinks and also yellows in photos for posting.
