CCMC #316 - Color Challenge

Good Morning, Stampers!


Take a look at the gorgeous color combination for this week's Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge! Doesn't have such a cool and calming feel to it?

When I first set out to create this card, I knew I wanted to use the Sizzix Flower Frenzy Bigz die. 
The problem I ran into was there is no stamp that coordinates with it. 
So, I thought, Designer Paper! That will work!
But I had NO DSP that would work with what I had in mind to do.
SO, I did the next best thing - I created my own!

The Background Stamps are the perfect solution!
I used the I Love Lace background stamp in the three challenge colors and then
cut each paper out using the die. 

Just as I had envisioned it! I really do LOVE this lace!


SU!pplies:
Stamps: I Love Lace, Another Thank You

You are so clever creating your own paper. I would love to see designer paper in the Lovely Lace pattern such as you created! Your card is beautiful!
