To get the 2 toned background for my card I stamped off once before stamping one of the flourishes. I like the effect I got.

Stamps: Flourishes and Frame
Paper: Snow Storm Smooth from MFP & Pacific Point
Ink: Pacific Point
Misc: Ribbon, Cricut, Plantin School Cartridge (circles)

Thanks for stopping by today. Good luck on the blog hop.

Happy Stamping!
