For the background I played with a little Distress Smooshing! OMG was that loads of fun!! I grabbed a couple of Distress Pads and got busy! I was giggling so loud in the loft, hubby hollered up to see if I was ok, lol. I also added a few sequins here & there.
I also tried something fun with that sentiment die that I saw, I think, Amy Scheffer do. After creating my background, I decided where I wanted that "hello" die to go, then I punched it out. I also punched out the same die with some creme cs (white was too blunt for the background). I think there are 4 layers there total, with the Smooshed layer on top... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way this turned out!!!
