Backgrounder Blitz Sketch Challenge

I am going to spend the week celebrating background stamps! There are so many ways to use these and I hope if you follow/play along this week you will be inspired by many ideas and techniques using backgrounders. I have attached the sketch below so that you can play too!
First up, is the sketch challenge. I just love this sketch because it allows the background stamp to be center stage! I did this very simple card using a brand new background stamp that will be released on Friday at Cornish Heritage Farms. It is called Tiled Scallops....so pretty and nice and small in scale...perfect for us " card" folk! Here are the rest of the deets on this card:
Stamps:
Tiled Scallops, Birthday centers (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink:
Stream (adirondack)
Paper:
White, Black (Prism)
Accessories:
crystal jewel (Hero Arts), Blackboard (Cosmo Cricket)

There are lots of us CHF girls playing so hop around these links and check it out. Come join in the fun at the forums too!
