Non-traditional backgrounds

Hello all! Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Today I wanted to share some cards that use non-traditional background stamps. By non-traditional, I mean stamps that weren't necessarily designed to be a background. DRS Designs has an awesome selection of background stamps, but they also have an awesome selection of other stamps that can be used to create backgrounds!

For my first card I used the golf bag stamp to create the background.

This next card uses the worm can stamp as the background. This stamp is fairly large but still works well as a background!

For my third card I used a simple "Happy Birthday" sentiment to create the background paper.
I'm pretty sure I've shared this card here before, but I thought I would share it again. Here I used the small frog stamp to create the background.Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
