Upholstery Background Technique

I made the background for this card using the Upholstery Technique.  It was a lot of fun making the backgrounds but when I tried to incorporate the finished piece into a card I ran into trouble.  I tend to make cutesy cards and they simply did not work on my background.  No matter what I did, I couldn't make it look right.  I finally pulled out my collage stamps and  came up with something I am pleased with!  I ended up using two different background pieces because I couldn't decide between them!! 

If you are looking for something different...this might be something you would enjoy.  Thanks for stopping by!
