IBS May Release: Background Basics II, Big Hope + Another IBS Stamp Set

Good morning and welcome back. 
Today is Day 2 of Inspired by Stamping May Release
These next set of stamps are going to be a great hit with everyone.
Background Basics II contains 3 different background stamps, that are not only what's in with the current trend, but they are also long enough to cover the width of an A2 card!!!
And if you LOVE sentiment, like I LOVE sentiments, then this next set is for you.
Big Hope contains 3 inspirational sentiments, that are big and beautiful.

So are you getting excited yet?!
I hope you are.  For my card today I have combined the Background Basics II and Big Hope, along with Little Flowers. 
I stamped Background Basics II on white cardstock, using a light and subtle pink.
I used Fancy Labels Die 1 cut out a frame that I am using as my focal point on my card. 
I then took the sentiment from Big Hope and stamped it the center.  Did some fussy cut with the leaf from Little Flowers and adhered it to the left of the frame.  Added two mini roses and some pearls and my card was complete. 

You must check out the rest of the DT teams creations, you will not be disappointed... promise!!
