Hi everyone!  I'm taking the Background Check class from Online Card Classes this week. (If you're not taking the class, I suggest you do.  All of their classes are very well done and informative!)  I've created a couple of backgrounds and made them into cards.  I'm sharing a plaid one today and a different background tomorrow. 
Laura Bassen created a background similar to this one and made a card with it similar to this one as well.  I guess you can say I cased her!  I used three pigment inks and a stripe stamp. I also used two die inks (the black and gray).  I sponged on the gray color and stamped the black with a thinner stripe stamp.  The scallop circle was die cut from the center then I embossed the sentiment in white.  I added some yellow sequins.
My colors came from this week's Color Throwdown.  I did add in the gray and black as neutrals.  Love these colors!
Thanks for stopping by!
