MMM: Create Your Own Background

Hi, friends!  How was your first week of April?  Ours started with rain showers!  I'm glad--we need it!  PLUS, April showers will bring May flowers, right?! ;)  Anyway, that's not the point of my post.  The point is to inform you about the amazing challenge we've got for you this week at Make My Monday!  Our challenge this week is for you to CREATE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND.  Which means I got to use my blending tool!!!

Here's my card~

Details~





I used a blending tool by Ranger, a fern stamp by Clarity, a texture stamp by Kaiser Kraft, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I had so much fun using my blending tool, doing some tone on tone stamping, and adding texture with stamp images!

Thanks for taking a peek at my creation!  I really hope you come and join in the fun this week--try something NEW!  Also, don't forget to go and tell the other DT gals how amazing their cards are, too!  Hugs and happy stamping, friends! :)
