Background Builders: Christmas Day 2


Did you enjoy the Design Team Blog Hop yesterday? I sure did, SO many FABulous ideas & so much inspiration. If you missed it you can catch up on it HERE

So, as I said yesterday, I haven't shown much love to Background Builders: Christmas so I am spending the week showing it some love! Todays card is a little out of my comfort zone and normal go to style...

I'm not 100% sure I like it as there is not as much 'white' space as I usually have on my projects, but it is good to step out of the zone now & then. 

For this card I was inspired by Nicki's card HERE which she shared a few weeks ago.  I just loved the text stamped background and wanted to give it a go. I am also inspired by Stacey's cards with the  use of layers, textures and ribbons like in this card HERE. So I kind of combined the two and this was the result!

That's all from me today using the set, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)
