Background week at The Craft Barn

Hi, we are all looking at 'backgrounds' this week over at *The Craft Barn Blog* .  You would think that as I am a journaler this would be easy right?  Well, it wasn't hard but I did have to think 'male' as I wanted to make hubby his birthday card.   I find it far easier make a large A4 sheet and then cut my background from that.  (or you can scan it and print it off when you want some) So with lots of swooshing of distress inks & stamping this is the card I ended up with...

Anyone who has met my lovely hubby will know that he is totally in love with his camera, well actually, any gadget that comes his way hahaha!  So this PaperArtsy stamp was just perfect!!!! 
Oooops...better show you a close up of part of the A4 background sheet I put together hadn't I...
Thank you for taking the time to pop by today, please take care peeps, HUGS xxx

I love your card Karen and the leaving the camera simply stamped in black is so perfect. The star of the show has to be that background though - gorgeous colours and layers make it so special. You mustn't waste a single piece of it though! Not long to go now. . . . . woohoo!!
Hugs, Juliaxxx
