Good morning and a very happy Saturday, welcome to the weekend!
It's Sue here, and today I'm sharing a card that I made for our Backgrounds In Focus challenge. I think this one holds the record for the most stamps used by me on a card lol.
These are the ones that I've used;
There's still lots of time to join in with our challenge, so please get stamping and remember to keep the Background In Focus.
Take care, and thanks so much for looking x

Now for our new Challenge!
BACKGROUND IN FOCUS
We want you to use a BACKGROUND STAMP or make a background using real rubber or clear stamps and we want it to be the star of your project. You can add a sentiment, embellishments or an image, but the stamped background must be obvious and prominent.
Real rubber or clear stamping and the theme must be the focus of your project. A small stamped sentiment in a sea of die cuts or digi images will not qualify to win the prize and you may be deleted!!!! Bwahahhaaahaha.
Please remember we do have some Challenge Rules to follow so look them over to ensure your entries qualify to win this month's prize!
You are welcome to play in our Challenges using rubber stamp images from any company but if you use any of our Lost Coast Designs or Carmen's Veranda stamps...we love it when you do...then your entry counts as two which doubles your chances of winning in our random prize drawing.
