PTI Make It Monday Challenge - Patterned Paper Background

(***Disclaimer***I wrote this post last night, but am just getting around to posting it today!)

Hi 'yall!  Whew...I'm so happy to be sitting here in my craft room chatting with you.  It's been a long day.  I worked today, gave a presentation, came home to the kiddos as my husband walked out the door for work, made and cleaned up dinner, played with the kids, gave the baths and got everyone tucked in bed.  Mommy's ready for a break.  Looking forward to spending some girl time at Archivers this weekend!
Tonight's project is for the PTI Make-it-Monday challenge on Nichole Heady's blog.  This week's challenge is to use patterned paper scraps to create a background for your card.  This is actually something I've been doing for a while (and even as recently as last week),, here, here, and here.  For tonight's card, I stamped all of the patterned papers instead of using pre-pattered paper.  This is a masculine one because as you all know, I seem to need these A LOT!! 

Thanks so much for visiting! Come back soon!
