Impression Obsession Stamp a Background

While I had my IO Cover a Card stamps out I made a few more backgrounds so I decided to make another card for the Impression Obsession Stamp a Background Challenge.

This time I used the IO Gingham background. I stamped with versa mark and embossed with white powder and sponged with Distress Ink fossilized amber. The Happy Birthday is a new die from IO. I added a  little color and some shaping on the strawberry flowers and filled with flower soft.   I created the frame by using two Spellbinders dies. 

These are the IO products I used for this card.
