Shadow Backgrounds

Hi there!  Happy to play along with Papertrey Ink
 Make it Monday
  I made this card on Monday but just getting around to
posting it today.

This is my second attempt as the first one was stamped in a dark gray,
 I thought it was too dark and busy so I remade it with Soft Stone Ink.
After I saw I pressed down too hard when I stamped the sentiment 
I ran out of time to remake a third time, so don't see the thick "on"

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and thank you for stopping by today!
