for this card i used a background stamp from joy clair.
it is super cute but i have to be honest and say i was stumped at what to make with it, how to use it. anyway, this is what i came up with.
hope you like it.

5-1/2 x 4"
i stamped the tufted buttons background stamp over this pretty patterned paper just because i wanted to have the look of fabric for my "comfort pillow" card.
after stamping i went over the design with a black ink pen to make it stand out a bit more.

the fabric flowers are from prima and i stamped over one of them with a flower stamp from a set called paisley bouquet, also from joy clair.
the sentiment is from the same set too.
i used a paper punch for the leaves and stamped the veins on it.
the center of the flower was made with chunky gold glitter.

the "with sympathy" sentiment now matches my pillow background.
comfort pillow that is. <3 :)
what a pretty font!

i added a cotton trim to my card and i used my plaid liquid embossing to cover the paper buttons i had punched to accent the background design.

and this is the entire card.
cute, huh?

anyway, these are the stamps used and they have been linked for your convenience:

i would love to hear what you do when you get stumped like i did with this stamp.  lol
i started looking at an old card magazine for ideas and below you will see what got my creativity going.
