Make it Monday, #128-Building Backgrounds (No.3)

Well, we're supposed to be building backgrounds, and build I did!! For awhile now, I've been looking at our inexpensive placemats that we have on our table out on the patio, and wishing I could make a card with a similar pattern. (Is that being a teensy bit obsessed, do you think?) So now that I have Meadow Greens, with those gorgeous fern stamps, I thought I would give it a try. Besides, it fits the challenge, doesn't it? (Ashley used all dots, but I don't think we "had to" to use all the same stamp--I hope.)
Here is the placemat.
And here is the card I made.  I was quite happy with the way it turned out!

All materials are PTI, unless otherwise indicated.
Stamps: Meadow Greens, Text Style, Fancy Flourishes, Crackle background, Turning a New Leaf and Boutique Borders (sentiment)
