Roses "hi"

I made this background using a stamp I carved a few weeks ago.  One morning while the kids were still asleep, I crept out to the shack and got on a kick to eliminate my stack(s) of backgrounds, and I decided to also get rid of a bunch of the letter stickers I used to use heavily in scrapbooking.  This is one of those cards:

  • I made this background using a scrap of regular 65 lb. cardstock
  • I inked the stamp I carved with Tim Holtz Embossing Ink and Recollections white embossing powder
  • Color Bursts were used for the colors: Violet, Merlot, Crimson, and Lemon Yellow, I believe.
  • The Thickers are from 2010
I'll share this at The Flower Challenge:
