The challenge requirement is to make the background a feature.
What I did: I started out by applying a thick layer of texture paste over the centre of the cardstock, then 'stamped' into it with an embossing folder. I really love the subtle pattern that shows through:
When it was dry, I added a little doodling around the title and edges. Then I remembered a little embroidered owl that I've had in my habby-stash for many years... just the right finishing touch!
Here's my layout:
