i used a very similar torn collage background for last week's card, but what can i say, i was on a roll! sometimes it's better not to even try to fight that sort of thing. so i didn't, lol. i'm still pretty fond of the glossy cardstock as a base, as well... especially when combined with a dymo label.
there are many more faux techniques to be seen at SOS this morning, why not stop by and greet my design team darlings?! ♥
