Create A Smile - make it soft!

Hi there,

it's monday - that means it's my turn on the Create A Smile Blog. 

Today I'm talking about creating soft background to get a well-balanced card with an image that pops.
I think it's obvious - I was inspired by Debby Hughes :)

I collected some tips for soft backgrounds - like texture, techniques and thoughts on placement.
Hop over to the Create A Smile Blog to find out more.


If you like that card and need that stamp set, click on the image below to get to the store:

Sorry I'm sparing of words - there's so much to do right now. (Send out orders, prepare more posts, housework... and then rush off to work. PHEW - time for holidays! I'll address today's card to myself!)

Thanks for your visit!
