The next challenge is the one that I had us do. When I saw this Video at Papertrey ink I thought that was so pretty, now I usually try to use pattern paper in my cards since I have so much of it, but every now and then it is nice to do our own backgrounds too :)
I like the look of tone on tone backgrounds, so I used green ink on green card stock, this card stock has a little bit of texture to it so I was happy to have my Misti stamping tool so that I could line them up and stamp a few times to get a nice solid stamp.
This set of butterfly stamps were in a cardmaking magazine I believe, I can't remember if I found it at the yard sale at my stamp store or in a magazine, but I love all the different sizes that were in this set, think it worked great for this background.

We had out last day of temperatures in the 50's yesterday, we are heading in the 40's for the next 7 days with lows below freezing, oh my. He did say that even though we are below normal now we may be above normal for Thanksgiving which will be nice :)
Hope all is good where you are, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and say Hi,
