Diamond Crimped Background

I was speaking to my new found friend Lyn on the phone last night and she sent me a link to a tutorial showing you how to make a diamond shaped crimped background for a card - then dared me to make a card and blog it today - so here it is!!!
Yes Lyn - when you hung up, I watched the video and set about having a go at it. It didn't take long, and it's by no means perfect, but I do like it.
As you can see - and you must be getting bored with it by now - yawn- I used my new found favourite rose stamp from You are Loved for the diamond shaped panel in the middle.
Colour Combo is really Red, Very vanilla and Basic Black.
Can't wait to have another go at this one!! Perhaps using a different stamp next time?
What do you think Lyn?

the link to the tutorial is here
