Love this challenge!. I actually used a background that I created a few months ago while playing around with Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts and Colour paste. I love the texture in the colours. Also added some stamping and hand written Journalling. I kept the embellishments simple - Burdy's Embellies button & The Scrappers Garden flower & flair - to showchase the background.
