embellished with Kindness

Hi there!  Happy weekend, everyone!  I have a fun share today - it's a card I created for the Embellish Challenge Background Challenge.  For this round, you need to use the colors in the challenge AND create a stamped background.  I've been wanting to use my Have A Seat stamp set, so this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity!  Here's a look at the colors and challenge inspiration photo:
Now, how fun are the colors - it's one of my new faves lately.  I love the Yellow and Gray together!  So here's my final card for you:

Whaddaya think?  I love the chairs as a background.  So so fun, yet a nice and clean classic look, too.  The quote I used is from the set called Occasional Quotes.  I'm a font girl and I really like it - I think it's pretty and crisp.  Are you wondering what die that scalloped rectangle is?  It's a modified square from the Scallop Square Duo Bigz die.  This was a fun card to put together, and super easy to make, too! Hope you like it!  Here's the recipe:

What do I think?? Um, brilliant!! How fabulous to create the paper with a stamp that is not even meant to be a background stamp. Totally love it.
