The mandala and script make a wonderful background to your pretty butterfly and leaves Christine and love the soft colours and the little yellow dots on the butterfly wings and the little clear glossy dew drops on the leaves which finish it perfectly. A beautiful card. x

So when do we get a background day? You make the most magnificent ones I’ve seen. Love the random elements as well as are your muted color palette. I do bow to you for all the fussy cutting and masking!

Wow! Your background is so subtle and beautiful Christine... I often wonder if you have a plan in your head what to use or does everything just come together...Lovely card!

You created such a beautiful background with so much interest, Christine! I love the neutral/earthy tone of the background, and the layers of DOX spraying, mandala stenciling and script stamping! The butterfly looks so pretty against the background!
