Make it Monday {Background Challenge}

I'm back! Sorry for the short hiatus last week-technical difficulties involving a my computer. I'm back now and kicking the week off with a "Make it Monday" challenge from Papertrey Ink. This week's challenge is to use a stamp as a background that wasn't intended to be a background. This challenge was perfect for me as I'm always looking for different ways to use my stamps. I pulled this little wine glass from the new Table Service set to make a thank you card for our friends Wade and Lalo. They were gracious enough to invite us up to "camp" over Labor Day weekend. We spent two glorious days in Alexandria, MN at a summer camp. We had the place to ourselves. In that short time, we crammed in wine tasting, boating, a bonfire, gourmet brunch, game of croquet, golf cart tours, and a Labor day feast. I felt like I was breaking every rule from kids summer camp and it was a blast. This card was the perfect way to say thanks to them for inviting us to join in the fun.

Paper: Stamper's Select White (PTI), Pool (Papersource)
Stamps: Table Service (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Bordeaux (Colorbox)
Dies: Double Ended Banners (PTI)

Great idea using the wine glass as your background. Makes a great "thank you" card for your friends. I am going to have to remember this for the future.
