BSS MONDAY IDEA - DOTS, STRIPES, PLAID AND FLOWERS

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is to use plaids, stripes, flowered paper and dots as a background.
I have used the simple, elegant Christmas stamp by Northwoods for the focal point of my card.
I colored with Copic Markers then cut it out using Spellbinders Large Deckled Mega Rectangles set.
Ran a gold Krylon pen along the edges and white glittered the pine needles on the image. I purposely left the background plain so that I could "busy up" the background.
For the background, I used four different papers from the Basic Gray Jovial Paper Pad.
Dots, Stripes, flowers, and plaid. I cut strips, all different sizes to fit across the card.

In between each print, I glued a 1/4 inch strip of green cardstock, and matted the stamped image in the same paper. Snowflakes are from a punch and glittered paper.
It's fun to use all different papers to make a background, and this beautiful stamp allows you to do just that.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday. Until later...........
