Backyard Basics Beauty

My first share!!! For my card I used the 'Backyard Basics' Stamp set. Now this is a set that I liked, but it didn't scream out to me 'I have to have it'. But the more I went through the catalogue... the more I became drawn to it... I just decided to get it and give it a try - and I love it, it is very versatile for many occasions like birthday, Mother's day, Easter, thinking of you, sympathy... even the bird or bee would be great for a masculine card. 
I decided I wanted to make a tiled look with the stamped images. The set has 6 images, the only one I didn't use on this card was the egg stamp (it would work nicely too!). I'm really enjoying playing around with this set. It is a wonderful set if you like colouring in images with markers, aquapainters or blender pens... or you could just leave the images as black outlines too! The images are very striking and you have the option of getting the framelits to match to make for easy cutting!
