Hope you all had a fabbie weekend and have been enjoying the glorious sunshine! Today's challenge over at Anything Goes this week is "make your own background". Now, I must confess, this is pretty much my worse nightmare challenge! As you know, I prefer to spend my time colouring but I thought the idea of a challenge is to challenge yourself!!! So why not make something totally different and completely not my style? So here it is.....
For this card, I used the Dienamics zig-zag border die and cut strips of cream and blue cardstock along with a sheet of patterned paper by Lily Bee Designs and glued them together to form a background. Kinda thought it looked a bit like a quilt. Then I got brave and stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts right over the top! The Butterfly is another Die-namic die and finished with pearls.
Do pop over and have a look at the DT's samples- this challenge is a great example of how we crafters can vary so much!
