Have you ever created a background or started a card, and inspiration stalled? I get that all the time. When it happens, I create a pile of my "unfinished designs" and they usually get shoved in a corner, or a drawer and forgotten.
This beauty was shoved away, and I finished it off and mounted it on brown cardstock. (not my usual go-to color) It turned out fabulously! I love the texture the birdcage gives to the background. It looks so planned.....I am encouraged when this happens. Take a look:
To be honest, I am not sure all I used to create this card, But I recognize the stamp sets. Here are the details:
Stamps: Free Flight from Penny Black
White cardstock: Solar White Neenah
Black and Brown: SU! cardstock
Ink: Various Distress inks and black for sentiment and butterfly
