Truly Great Friends

Love the Cover a Card Backgrounds from Impression Obsession! I stamped the white panel with Peeled Paint ink and then stamped (without reinking) again on the white panel and phrase panel to create a muted pattern. Who needs pattern papers when you have so many great backgrounds to choose from?

My card uses C3625 Truly Great Friends and CC027 Cover a Card Flourishes.
