More fallish cards with the true friends set. These were done using clear glitter instead of the brown, with more accent on the floral stamps in this set. I'm such a frugal girl, I usually even try to use small bits and pieces of patterned paper that are leftover from cutting out layouts. Sometimes it adds just a bit of interest and contrast to the card. The small brown triangles were cut out of a fullsize sheet of patterned paper. I've still been using my hero arts distressed rectangular and square backgrounds. I would think that if you have the large Stampin Up "sanded" background, you could get the same effect by using that as the background and cutting your focal image down to size.
