Stamp Your Background

Remember the days when most of us used plain cardstock as our background paper? Nowadays, we rely on having patterned paper to take that place, and every paper collection will have a certain number of "B" sides that make amazing background papers.

This time, I chose a rather plain "B" side paper and did some stamping to create my own "patterned paper".

This Is The Greatest Day
This layout is quite simple in style, with just a few strips of paper laid vertically on the page. I like all the pinks and reds that contrast with the yellows.
A splash of yellow against the reds and pinks draw your eyes inwards to the photo.
Instead of stamping over the whole page, I added the stamping to open areas around all the other elements only.
