Fun with a background stamp

Hiya! I have been in love with this Flower Text background forever, so when I finally saw it at Michaels, I had to have it! {I paid full price, EEK!} ;) I stamped it out on white cardstock for this first card. Super simple. I added black enamel accents to the flower centers.
I love the shine of the enamel accents. And for this next card, I stepped it up and paper pieced. :)
I used the Sweet Threads collection from Basic Grey. This may seem like it took a long time, but it didn't! I ♥ paper piecing so much. :)
Finished it off with some gems and liquid pearls. I plan on doing some more like this with different papers for yet another look. 

I hope you have a fantastic day!

♥ Nikki ♥
