Stamped layered background

This month on the Hero Blog one of our challenges is to make layered backgrounds.  Here is a card by Shari Carroll which everyone has fallen in love with:


and here is her video explaining how she made it.  Here's my CASE of her card:


This was SO FUN to make!!  Please give it a try - you will love the "walk and wiggle"!
