Happy Tuesday!
We're starting a new challenge today at Tuesday Throwdown - Create Your Own Background!
Our fabulous sponsor is DRS Designs, and they have provided the team with some awesome images to use!
I chose to use the Argyle Background image for my card:
I started my card by filling a word document with the argyle pattern so that it would cover an entire card.  Once it was printed, I blended a couple of distress ink colors in around the edges so that the center remained light to help highlight the rest of the details on my card.

I had a few roses (from Winnie & Walter's Elsa's Flora) left over from a large batch of cards I had put together for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive, so I grabbed a few of those and arranged them on the card.  Then used the Prayers die cut from the Hero Arts Prayers set and cut it out from a few layers of white cardstock.  I layered them together and then adhered the rest of the sentiment, which was white heat embossed onto vellum, under the 'P' and glued the whole thing down.

I really wanted to keep this card simple, so I skipped all the extra embellishments.  Honestly, I don't feel it needs them.  This card turned out perfect and I had enough supplies left over to get a second one made!  Love it when that happens :)
Be sure to stop by Tuesday Throwdown to check out the rest of the DT's creations, and then join in this fun challenge!!
