Free Blog Background - Green & Cream

This complimentary background was made using an abstract design created from some Victorian play money! The ribbon that was used is from a yummy antique silk ribbon that was hand sewn a very long time ago. This size is suitable for use on Blogger using the Minima template with the standard number of columns.

Follow these instructions to use this background on your blog:
1)Make sure you are logged in and then click "Customize" at the top of your blog.
2)Click on "Add A Gadget"
3)Scroll down the box and click on "Html/Javascript"
4)In the "Content Box" cut and paste the Html code posted below.
5)Click "Save" and you are done!

<style type="text/css">body {background-image:
url(""); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat;background-attachment: fixed; }</style><div id="tag"
style="position:absolute; left:10px; top:30px; z-index:50;width:172px;
height:51px;"><a href=""


  1. That is my favourite! I don't have a blog, but I will print it out, thanks!

  2. Karen, WOW this is just great. I changed my background to this and although the green doesnt show up I love the way it looks, check it out! You rock!

  3. This is beautiful - I love it and I am so glad that Cutest Blog on the Block has a competitor! More luscious designs please!!!

    Thank you.


  4. Hi Sija,
    Yes, you can still use it for craft projects! I'm glad you like it.

    Hi Willow Witch,
    Thanks so much! I think you are officially the first person to download one. Wahooo! I went over to your blog and it looks green to me, I checked my daughters computer to and it looks just fine there, I wonder why it's not showing green on yours? Either way, I'm glad your pleased with it!

    Hi Bunty,
    Yes, I was inspired by "Cutest" and although they do a wonderful job, many of their backgrounds are more contemporary and well, cute! I wanted to create backgrounds that had more of a vintage look and a slightly more elegant style.
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Your blog is gorgeous! I've added a link for you on my Graphics Fairy blog.


  5. Hi Karen,
    This is my fav so far--can't wait to check back every day to see what's new!!! I'll add you as a link on my blog!

  6. I used this one for my new look for 2009. Thanks for sharing!!

  7. Hi Cathy,
    This one goes great with your cute green froggies! I'm so glad it worked out for you.

  8. I just added this to my blog...It's soooo pretty!
    Hopefully now someone will notice me!
    It's so nice that you provide these wonderful things to us. Thank you so very much!


  9. Thanks you soooo much! I have tried to turn my bolg into a 3 column to add some backgournds that were available, but I couldn't figure out how to do it. Now I know it was so that I would come across your site to find the perfect 2 column background! You really are the Background Fairy! Thanks again it is beautiful!

  10. I'd love to use this background but it's not working. I gave it about 10 min to load just in case but all I see is the logo in the top left and then my page is white. Do you know if this is still working?
    I got a few of your others to work just find so I know most of them do.

  11. Hi Debbie,
    That's so strange! I just double checked to make sure this one is still uploaded and it is, and the code is fine. The reader that commented above you (Domestically Inclined" just added this one to her blog a few days ago and was working fine, only today it has vanished! At anyrate, I just tried it on my test blog and it seems to be working now, but it looks like you will have to delete it and reload it. I'm sorry about that, I have no idea why this happened, this is the first time I've seen this!

  12. Thank you so much for this lovely background! I love it! You are so sweet to send us these creations to up grade our blogs...sharon

  13. well.. it's like I said!

  14. do you have anything with the ribbon and a blue background?
