Mama Elephant- Modern Borders Highlight {post2}

Hello, friends:} 

**Please scroll up/down for my Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge post.


Today the Mama Elephant design team is taking a closer look at the Modern Borders stamp set. Be sure to stop by the ME blog for more details and inspiration!!! 

I have to say that background stamps really stump me-- I never know what to do with them! However, I saw THIS embroidered piece on Pinterest and knew I had to recreate it using that ME crosshatch chevron stamp!  I added some flowers and gems (Imagainisce/iRock) along with some gold floss holding a tag that was stamped using the ME Rustic Spring {sentiment} and Type It {birdie} sets. LOVE how this turned out! The papers {My Mind's Eye} along with these ME images make this card vintage/shabby/chic....I think:) LOVE
That's it for me today. Be sure to stop by all of the ME DTs' blogs and the ME blog for more inspiration and details. **New ME Stamps are available NOW!!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
