Thanks for all of your responses. Looks like the majority of you would keep the background stamps. I also found out about using Google images last year to get ideas on certain stamp sets but have never thought of using it for the background stamps.
I'm hoping to get into my craft area later today when I get back from grocery shopping. I really need to go through my stuff but after hearing from everyone, it looks like I'll keep my back ground stamps. Atleast the French Script & Musical one. I'm trying to think what the other two are...I think one is the Houndstooth, maybe? Can that be incorporated into a Christmas card?
