Playing with backgrounds.

I have a huge bag of  backgrounds that I've made.  I could go on making these for hours on end.  Once I start, it's difficult to stop because I want to see what the next colour combination is going to look like.  I've used a mask by That Special Touch and put gold embossing paste through it.  The butterflies are a freebie  die from one of this month's magazines.

Lovely card Carol. What a good idea to have a big selection of backgrounds. It must make it easier to make a card, especially if you are pressed for time.

The background makes the card very dynamic and I like it :)
