I've learnt two things making my background, first I need more practice to use Tim Holtz Distress Resist Spray, definitely a bit heavy handed.

Second I actually had more fun and better results with Watercolour Cardstock obviously been a bit of cheapskate doesn't work. The background was made with the smooching technique with Oxides.

I used Tim Holtz Wildflowers stems 1 and you know I love making white flowers. My sentiment was made with Simon says Stamp Amazing stamps and using Tim Holtz Crochet Thinlets to edge the border.

Did I mention what fun I had that does mean I made more backgrounds so watch out for some more cards.

This is very pretty and love the colour of that background Debby and then the crochet border and wild flowers and foliage all in white stands out so prettily over the top, and a great sentiment in a coordinating green too. x

Beautiful card! Your background is just perfect to set off your pretty white flowers. I love that lacy die-cut at the bottom, too.
