If you've got it, stamp it!

Hola friends,
It's been so great having a few extra days off. I've got to check some things off my to-do list that I've been wanting to do for a while, I've cleaned up the house (and since my two biggest mess-makers are up north) it's stayed clean! and of course I've got a bit of craft time in there :)

Here's a card I made with some new (to me) techniques:
 This week, the Make-it-Monday technique at PTI was Layered Backgrounds with Sentiment Stamps. Betsy Veldman is hosting the challenge this week. She makes some amazing, creative cards & after seeing her beautiful card, I was inspired to the try the technique. I think the trick is to stamp the background in a different color from the main image (which I didn't do).  I stamped both in black so there isn't as much contrast. Another technique I gave a go was the spotlight technique which is pretty neat. The stamp set is YOF: Sweet Peas from PTI (which is finally seeing some ink, me thinks) colored with Copics. The cs is Melon Berry & Kraft.
I used the current sketch from my friends at Cardabilities:
I'm also playing along at the following challenges:
Card Makin Mamas: Sentiments
Papercraft Star: Anything Goes

Ok, that's it for now. Hope you have some lovely crafternoons this weekend!
Gotta Go!
