a background. . . .

created by sponging through a paper doily for the 
Simon Says Stamp challenge:



All die cuts except the sentiment from Penny Black.  A bit of Stickles glitter.  Simple but I like it. 

Cold and snowy here today - a good day for making cards!  Stay warm, my friends.

Sweet card, Joy! Haven't sponged through a doily or lace in a long time--thanks for the inspiration! Winter Wonderland here--hubby drove me to work--I'm a chicken!

What a deer, I mean dear, scene, Joy. Super-great background (I'll have to give it a try) - so soft and pretty.
