Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge

Hello friends~ Elizabeth Craft Designs is starting a new Designer's Challenge today and the theme is to make a creative background.

I created my background by using Gelato's on a piece of water color cardstock.  I colored the Gelato's on and then generously spritzed it with water and let the colors run.  Once it was dry I spritzed it again using Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and allowed it to dry.
I then ran it through the die cutting machine using the new Abstract Background Die and mounted it to an A2 sized top folding card base.

 I used the Stitched Heart and layered two of these cute Buttons that also have stitched details.  The sentiment is from Valentine Sentiments.

Be sure to visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to see how the other designers were inspired to make creative backgrounds then leave a comment answering the following question for your chance to win a $20 Gift Card to Elizabeth Craft Designs.
 What Elizabeth Craft Designs dies or stamp sets would you use to create a background on something you were creating?

This is my final post for Elizabeth Craft Designs and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone and I'll miss you all!
