Marbleized Background

Hi  blogger friends,  We just returned yesterday from a few days camping in Vermont.  It rained most of the time, but we made the best of it anyway.  Well best for my Hubby as he beat me in every single card game we played. Good thing neither of us is competitive.  After I lost many, many games we took a nice long right to get some Apple Cider Donuts - YUMMM!!!!   So I have been taking a Background Technique class from Marie over at Color Me Creative and I'm having fun with it.  I need a bit more practice, but I thought I's make a card out of one of my attempts.
 I am having trouble letting the background shine, but as you all know by now, photography is not my thing.  Anyway in real life you can see the marbled effect.  So paired this up with some SU! green card stock and some retired d/p from SU! and came up with a card.  I added a little jewelry tag for the sentiment.     I'm off to try some more backgrounds.  I wish you all a super nice day.  We are having another hot, humid day here in Ma. but a storm and cold front are scheduled for this evening with a gorgeous weekend ahead.  Thanks so much for taking a peek.
