Background Tweets Group Challenge

Today Clear & Simple Stamps has challenged the design team to create a card using our own background paper.  This came pretty easy to me as I do enjoy making my own patterned paper when I'm able to.

I chose to use the new set Tweet Notes set and started by stamping the background with the itty bitty solid flower in black ink in a random pattern.  

After I stamped that, I then added the outlined flower in Simply Blue-tiful.  
I then assembled my card and added on my focal image adding some Viva Pearl Pen to the flower centers to make it POP against the black ink and blue background.

Card details:
Stamps: Tweet Notes from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: On the Catwalk Cream, Perfect Little Black Dress, Simply Blue-tiful
Inks: Simply Blue-tiful, Perfect Little Black Dress
Embellishments: Viva Pearl Pen-cream, Simply Blue-tiful ribbon, black rhinestones, large scallop spellbinders nestabilitie die, large scallop border punch
