Collage Background Cards

Congratulations to Operation Write Home ( for winning $25,000 donation from Jo Ann's fabrics!  Thanks to all of you who voted for them!

These are some cards I'm getting ready to send by the first of the year.  Valentine cards are due in early January.  The background was inspired by a new collage stamp from Hero Arts.  I made my own collage by stamping a butterfly, some office stuff, flourishes and text in the same ink color on a neutral background.  I got a variety of looks.  One was used on yesterday's envelope card and the remainder for these 'love' cards.  It is a great way to use some of those stamps that might not be getting as much exercise as they once did. 

Happy day!  I think I'm going to be braving the stores with my aunt today after her doctor appointment.  A determined lady in an electric wheelchair and her niece struggling to keep up :-) Wish us luck!

Ingredients:  A variety of stamp set including   Text Style from PTI; Flourishes from Paper Studio; Itty Bitty Background, Office Accoutrement, God's Beauty by Stampin' Up!

Ink:  Sahara Sand; Tattered Rose by Ranger
