Beate's Sketch #5

I am not sure this qualifies for Beate's sketch challenge, but I needed a card for a friend. Her friend is having a baby, and the mommy-to-be is a contemporary type person. I wanted this card to be babyish but not plain. Sometimes I think the contempo designs are a little plain, but sometimes that is a good thing.
This card opens in the middle. I need to work on my scoring and folding. I did the white part about 4 times until I was satisfied with the look. I need to stop trying to make everything so perfect.
I made the background for this card by using post-it notes and my brayer. I inked up the piece of glossy card stock with almost amethyst. Then I positioned post-it notes around, and used the brayer with Lavender Lace. I repositioned the post-it notes a few times to get the layered effect.
I thought about using some of my new prima flowers, but they did not look right. Oh and I colored in the image with markers. Boy I just noticed I have been on a purple kick, am I a creature of habit or what?
Thanks for looking.
Stamps: A New Little Someone
Inks: Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Pixie Pink
Paper: Glossy White, Whisper White, Basic Black

Does anyone know what is up with Beate's Blog. I went to add my card and I cannot connect, it seems to be down.

OMG, you made the background paper, is it beautiful, the card is great and I love the stamp but the background paper is fantastic.

What an awesome background, such a clever way to do it! I totally assumed it was DP at first! I've been having trouble with all the splitcoast blogs today - I think the site being down somehow affected the blogs.
