Today’s Craft: Background Bonanza

Vibrant color and a bold sentiment are the name of the game today. Counselor Stephanie has been playing with alphabet dies and ink but if you prefer stamps or any other background technique, go for it! The choice is yours — just create a background that makes a statement.
