Creating backgrounds

The month’s challenge at  Sarah Hurley challenge blog has begun. This month’s challenge is to Create your own background.

First up, I used the snowflakes from Sarah’s Christmas Characters stamp set and stamped a white ink over kraft to create my background. Santa and the Christmas sentiment are also from the same stamp set. To add some texture, I put a white pompom in Santa’s hat & sequins. I also used the banner and cane stamp from the Christmas Mail stamp set while the Merry sentiment is from Outline Alpha stamps.  Noticed the silver lines in the green background paper and above the gray paper? I also embossed them with silver embossing.
