I love the stamp from the Friends 24/7 set that is perfect for backgrounds (and I always think it looks a bit like very elegant wallpaper). I wanted to create a wallpaper effect and I had just received my Craft White stamp pad (where have I been!) so 1 + 1 equals - a card!
I used Close to Cocoa (retiring - how sad), Kraft and Whisper White. It was so simple.
