Week of Hero Arts- Day 1

I've been slacking on the blog lately so I decided to work with some of my favorite Hero Arts stamps and products. I made seven cards so I'm declaring this Hero Arts Week on my blog. :) Here is the card for Day One... 
This card was inspired by Jennifer's card HERE. I am addicted to Distress Stains because of her and love using them on an embossed background. Here is a closer look...
After applying the distress stains, I sprayed it heavily with pearlized water. Love the shine it gives. THIS is my favorite background stamp because it can stand alone....doesn't need much more. (BTW- that pretty ribbon and those pearls are from Hero Arts too.)

Thanks for stopping by! Be back tomorrow with another card!
