Bits and Pieces Background check

One thing I really love about photopolymer stamps is how easy it is to use a *lot* of them together. I had an idea that I should make a background of birthday stamps. After pulling out more (and more!) clear sets to find birthday elements, I came up with this one. Some of the hearts and stars were added afterward to fill in holes. My favorite thing on the background is the sentiment from Age Awareness: "You look way better at this age than I thought you would" hahahahahaha Perfect for "that friend" or your sister, right?

The flower elements are more leftovers sitting out on my desk, and are made with the Flower Patch set and the matching Flower Fair framelits. It had been awhile since I had found a flower set to love, maybe even a year. But Flower Patch is firmly in blue ribbon territory for my flower stamp category.
