Decorative Background

Morning all,
hope you're having a good week, it's certainly been a lot colder, luckily the snow near us cleared quickly.

and done just that!...
Created my own background for an any occasion card.
I cut a 13cm square white stamping card and stamped the lined linen look background element using 
The Swirly elements were stamped using Versacolour Rose Red.
I rounded the corners of this card using the Regular corner punch.

I had a piece of red nylon/ribbon in my stash so I attached this using tape on the back of the card.
Then I used a 1 1/2 inch punch to cut the circle and stamped the firework element in orange.
This was glued in place.
I matted this layer onto a 14cm piece of orange card, rounding off the corners again.
The whole thing is mounted onto a 15cm card and a few red gems stuck on finished this design.

Hope you like this, I really enjoyed using these elements in this way.

Have a good day.
