PTI Make It Monday #128 Stamping Random Backgrounds

I'm back again for another Papertrey Ink Make It Monday.  This week Ashley has a video using small stamps to create a random background.  For my card I am using the Papertrey Ink "Mini Blooms" and the coordinating die set of the same name.  First, I stamped my background using 3 layers of cream card stock that was adhered with removable tape.  I will have the measurements at the end of this post if you are interested. For ink colors I used Stampin Up River Rock, Baja Breeze, Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive.  I used Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edges.  After stamping I took each layer and mounted it on Baja Breeze cardstock.  Make sure when you adhere the layers together that they are going in the correct direction, so your images line up.  The sentiment is also from the same Mini Blooms stamp set.  I added some cream lace around the sentiment and added die cut flowers that I used for the background.  It's really busy, but I think I like it in a funky sort of way.

Here is my card...

For this card you need 3 pieces of cream card stock cut to the following:
2 x 3 1/4
3 x 4 1/4
4 x 5 1/5

Color card stock:
2 1/4 x 3 1/2
3 1/4 x 4 1/2

A2 card - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
