Being a huge fan of Hero Arts...I had to play along with the latest Embellish Challenge of Background stamping.
Here is my card:
Besides from the obvious orange embossed background stamp, I have added a few other less obvious background stamps to the leaves and the flower just to give them some added interest :)
I think background stamps are the type of stamp I have the most of....I just LOVE to create my own patterned papers while playing with ink and embossing powder :)
I have some personal news to share....my baby girl officially graduated from College today. She graduated with Honors and received an award for the second highest mark in scaling...she found out today that she also passed her board exam so she is now a registered Dental Hygienist :) Momma is so proud!!!!...she only turned 19 this past May, so I think this is a huge accomplishment!

Have the most wonderful day!

I am definitely going with the "modern vintage" feel again...not even on purpose LOL! I am not sure I really like this card....almost feel like there is too much of a "party" going on on it! hahaha. I guess I'll just have to find the right "party" girl to send it to for her birthday!
