PTI MIM #284: Background Stamping with Sentiment Stamps

Sure is a good thing that Papertrey Ink has a weekly Make It Monday Challenge with the chance to win a $25 gift certificate. This certainly motivates me to get in my stamp room to create at least one card that I need in the near future. Today I followed Melissa's video sharing how she uses sentiment stamps to create a background and then appropriately embellishes the card. It's that time of year to make graduation cards, and I always design them specifically for the graduate using their school colors. Here's what I created today for a cousin's granddaughter. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. 
Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Spring Rain and Enchanted Evening
Ink: Spring Rain and Enchanted Evening
Stamps: Birthday Cheer, Celebrations and Stylish Sentiments: Birthday (EE stars)
Dies: Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical, For The Graduate and Modern Numbers
Other: Sizzix Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, SU Silver Embossing Powder & VersaMark Pen, Silver Glitter Paper (Joann's), Star Punch (stash) and Foam Tape
