BEHIND THE SCENES:
I made a card and used a stamped sentiment to create my background. The sentiment is from the Birthday Chicken stamp set by 2RedBananas, as is the chicken image. I stamped the sentiment with Moonlight White ink on yellowish orange CS and adhered it to the white CS base. The chicken image is stamped on a scrap of Basic Grey DP with Jet Black StazOn and colored with watercolor pencils.
Of course, after I finished this card I thought that a monochromatic background made from a punched shape would have been cool, too. Unfortunately I didn't have time to make another card, because I had to finish making Matt's birthday cake.
I hope you'll accept this challenge and try to create a background of your own. Go to 2RB's blog and see all of the samples or post your own entry.
