Purple winter...

I saw a wonderful background last week and wanted to try it immidiatly! The girl who did this just stamped some snowflakes in the same color like the cardstocck - just a darker version. Then she lightly goes with her white pen along the lines of the stamps. This looks sooo cool! So I tried it on this card:

Here´s a close-up of the background.

I used my new cuttlebug-folders too - finally! I have them for some a while now and still haven´t used them. To make the embossing more visible I used a white chlak-inkpad to highlight it a little. Now I´m not sure anymore if I still like it or if it is too much. What do you think?

I´m sure I´ll do more cards with those backgrounds. It´s a good way to safe patternd paper. But I´ll use pp too - I just love it too much to not use it! ;o)

I love this card. The image is so cute. I don't recognize it. I'm assuming it's one we don't have here in the states. Your purple background is a great choice. This is so cute.
